Corn and Green Chile Soup Serves 4; heaping 3/4 cup per serving
Ready in no time, this chunky and spicy soup requires very little cleanup.
16 ounces frozen whole-kernel corn, thawed
12 ounces fat-free evaporated milk
2 ounces chopped green chiles, drained
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne (optional)
1/2 medium red bell pepper, finely chopped (optional)
3 medium green onions, finely chopped
2 teaspoons light tub margarine
1/4 cup shredded fat-free sharp Cheddar cheese
In a medium saucepan, stir together the corn, milk, green chiles, cumin, pepper, and cayenne. Bring just to a simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat.

The American Heart Association's Low-Salt Cookbook: A Complete Guide To Reducing Sodium And Fat In Your Diet, 2nd Edition is a bargain collection of appealing, imaginative exciting recipes that substitute culinary genius for overseasoning with salt and-or overuse of butterfat. A team of recipe developers, editorial assistants, consultants, and of course a registered dietitian provide the multitask disciplinary approach which results in a classic gem of a cookbook. Recipe categories include appetizers, soups, salads and dressings, seafood, poultry, meats, vegetarian entrees, vegetable and side dishes, sauces and seasonings, breads, and desserts. There are additional appendices on shopping, cooking, dining out, and how to protect your heart and brain. These include a handy herb, spice and seasoning guide on page 328 that is worth copying and posting in your kitchen in a viewing place. Recipes are complete with blue boxed nutritional analyses plus blue boxed cook's tips, containing recipe modifications or variations or ways to further reduce sodium or fat content, for example. For ethnic variety, there is a wonderful recipe for Buffalo Baked in Pumpkin, made with wild rice, honey mustard, jalapeno peppers, onion, parsley, bell peppers, pumpkin seeds or pine nuts, thyme, cilantro and cayenne. What a showstopper! Other tasty tidbits include Granny Apple and Cranberry Salad, Mediterranean Couscous, Eggplant Mexicana (with chili powder, pepper, onion, garlic, and tomatoes), Black Bean Soup, Hot and Smoky Chipotle-Garlic Dip, Crustless Garden Quiche, and real live actual Cheese Blintzes. The Low-Salt Cookbook is chock full of delicious wasy to overcome health problems such as high cholesterol and high blood pressure, not to mention obesity. The Low-Salt Cookbook is a must for health conscious cooks everywhere.

I bought this book because my husband found out from his doctor he has to lower his salt and fat. We have tried several of the recipes in the book and loved them all so far. I find I have my spice cupboard open a lot more and it takes a bit more time to prepare dinner, but it's worth every minute. I thought low-salt, low-fat cooking was giving up flavor, but it's not. I've recommended this book to several friends, and SO HAS MY HUSBAND. I actually feel better eating this way. I will serve these dishes to company. Eat recipe plainly lists the calories, fat breakdown and salt content.

I was interested in this book because my husband had just lately been diagnosed with a heart condition and it was recommended that he lower his salt intake. The recipes are quite useful. I wish there was more about what to substitute for salt in recipes and what to expect if you omitted the salt. We found we could eliminate the salt altogether and it made no difference in flavor.

Have found the recipes to be tasty, not bland. Easy to follow recipes, would have most ingredients at home. Great working with other spices and seasonings. Would recommend.

HASH(0x9baced44) out of 5 stars Lowering Sodium Without Lowering Taste! May 27 2006
By L Smith - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Most Americans could benefit from lowering the sodium in their diets. Canned foods, processed foods, and fast food all contribute to the high fat, high salt diets that many of us eat. When faced with getting older or health issues, many people turn to their doctors for help with this American epidemic. But why not start now? If you have high blood pressure, are obese, or are just looking to improve your diet, this cookbook is a must for you!

Filled with tons of great recipes (and an additional 50 from the last addition), this book includes categories such as Appetizers & Snacks, Seafood, Meats, Soups, Vegetarian Entrees, and even Desserts. All of the recipes include complete nutrient information and include calories, fat (including saturated, polyunsaturated, and monosaturated), cholesterol, sodium, carbs, protein, calcium, potassium, and dietary exchanges. The only things missing from this addition are a spiral binding (to help it lay flat) and full color photos of each recipe.

Some of my family's favorites include: Blackberry & Balsamic Chicken, Grilled Sesame Chicken, Cowboy Steak with Portobello Mushrooms, Slow Cooker Beef and Red Beans, Baked Pork Chops with Apple Dressing, Braised Lentil and Vegetable Medley, Strawberry Orange Sauce, Chocolate Chip Banana Bread, Flan Caramel, Potato Skin Nachos, and Vegetable Beef Soup.

HASH(0x9baced98) out of 5 stars Takes time getting accustomed to! Jan. 14 2007
By Mtn Lady - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have tried a few of the recipes and enjoyed them. My hubby wasn't too thrilled.

I am voluntarily trying to reduce my sodium intake as my blood pressure has steadily crept up over the last few years, as has my weight! It isn't easy for me because I like salty foods but this cookbook has helped and will continue to help.

HASH(0x9af67090) out of 5 stars Tasty quick meals May 11 2008
By Teach95 - Published on
Format: Paperback
I bought this book because I wanted to reduce the amount of sodium I was eating. I noticed in some of the other cookbooks I was using the amount of sodium I was taking in was quite high. I almost didn't purchase it because it didn't have any pictures, and I am glad I changed my mind. The recipes I have tried so far have been easy and very tasty. My daughters(6 & 8) ate up the Crustless Garden Quiche, Zesty Oven-Fried Potatoes, Poached Salmon, and Thyme Fish Steaks. All were very quick to make on a weeknight. Also very delicous is the chocolate chip banana bread which we have made together twice. It did not take long to make and they did most of the work the second time.

The appendix also has helpful advice on shopping, cooking , and making substitutions. I look forward to making more recipes fromt this book.

HASH(0x9af675ac) out of 5 stars The ultimate low sodium cookbook April 20 2012
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Finally, a low sodium cookbook worth buying. It has a good tutorial on sodium's place in our diet. The recipes are truly tasty and truly low sodium. The Kindle edition's bookmarking and notes capabilities are especially convenient. The barbeque sauce is especially good.

HASH(0x9bacee58) out of 5 stars Less salt with good taste! Dec 7 2011
By Pam - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Due to high blood pressure, I have been trying to cook healthier for my husband and myself; mainly low-salt and low-fat.

This cookbook is informative: telling how to avoid hidden sodium in foods, list of foods high in sodium and healthy cooking techniques, plus many great recipes. We especially liked the Chicken, Barley and Spinach Casserole, the Chicken Dijon and Scalloped Potatoes. I just wish it included some photo shots of the dishes!
