Moosewood Restaurant Simple Suppers: Fresh Ideas for the Weeknight Table Read Online Free - Eating the Moosewood Restaurant way every day has never been easier.
Whole grains. Fresh fruits and vegetables. Lean, nutrient-rich fish. We all know the virtues of a well-balanced diet—of choosing foods that nourish our bodies and respect the environment—but as the world around us gets busier and more complicated, we also know how difficult it can be to prepare a wholesome, satisfying supper. With an emphasis on healthful natural foods, Moosewood Restaurant has operated successfully for more than thirty years and has been acclaimed as a driving force in the world of creative vegetarian cuisine. Now the Moosewood Collective goes back to basics with Moosewood Restaurant Simple Suppers to deliver fresh, imaginative, and quickly prepared dishes for the weeknight table that are also delicious and reliable.
Shortcut Chili. Creamy Lemon Pasta. Warm French Lentil Salad. Pine Nut–Crusted Fish. Mocha Sorbet. From soups and pastas made with just a few pantry essentials to crisp salads, stir-fries, sandwiches, and desserts, these easy-to-prepare recipes are brilliant as is. However, the folks at Moosewood realize that flexibility is the cornerstone of weeknight cooking, so you’ll find clever ingredient substitutions, alternative cooking methods, and serving suggestions alongside the recipes in Simple Suppers—it all depends on what’s in the fridge and what sounds appetizing at the moment. Make extra Fresh Tomato and Mozzarella Salad on Monday and toss leftovers with hot pasta for Tuesday’s supper. No onions for Black Beans with Pickled Red Onions? Try the beans over rice with Quick Avocado and Corn Salsa instead. The 175-plus recipes in Moosewood Restaurant Simple Suppers are as flexible as they are flavorful—the perfect go-to for a quick, healthy meal any day of the week, any time of year.
We crave simple food.
We want cooking at home to be a small pleasure—relaxed enough that we can enjoy the process as well as the results. When we mentioned to friends that we were thinking of doing a book of recipes for simple suppers, inevitably they exclaimed, “That’s the one I need” or “Write that book for me.” The idea of simple suppers strikes a chord within us all. We hope this cookbook will help make suppertime a welcome, peaceful time of your day. —from the Introduction

I found out about the Moosewood Cookbooks in my book-a-day calendar. I am not a vegetarian, but the recipes sounded simply mouthwatering. So...we checked it out of the library (I didn't want to spend hard earned money unless it was good). My husband and I tried 6 recipes and LOVED every single on...

This is very usable book. I have worked my way through almost 70 of the recipes and all have been fairly easy to prepare and satisfying to my family. Our favorites include Creamy Lemon Pasta, Jop Chai, Caesar Salad with Tofu Croutons, Spinach-Cheese Burritos, and the super-delicious Cilantro Lime...

This book is ok. I appreciate that the recipes are simple and usually result in a minimal amount of clean-up afterward, however I think that in some cases adding another pot or pan to the clean-up could have resulted in a better recipe.
A few of the recipes I made were awesome; I made them multipl...

There were a few recipes in here I will actually try. There's lots and lots of vegetarian/vegan options for those who need them. My husband and I are pretty plain eaters; besides his affection for all things Mexican food, we have a pretty basic palette. That being said, quite a few of these "simp...

I am not a vegetarian. That is probably why I can't rate this book any higher. It tried to use corn on the cob as a recipe which I think is ridiculous. And - vegetarian reuben?????

This book is out of print and it makes me sad. I rented this from the library and LOVE it. I'm debating on whether or not I want to buy a used one as I already have a Moosewood cookbook that I cook from all the time and love. I think there are some repeats in this book of recipes that are in the...

I'm loving this book. I've already made Nachos Grandes, Broccoli Slaw, Chipotle Scrambled Eggs, and Poached Huevos Rancheros. I have many more recipes on my to try list. I'm looking forward to more delicious simple suppers and even a few breakfasts (which of course can also be served for supper)....
