Mung beans: life-changing.
Heidi Swanson encourages her readers to experiment, using new things, or old things in new ways.
I grilled two really large oyster mushrooms that I had lightly coated in olive oil, salt, pepper and dried sage. Chopped them up and added them to sauteed La...

While I live with Heidi and this is completely biased, I did test many of these recipes and have definitely eaten every one at least once. For a novice cook like myself, the food is not difficult to make, is interesting, diverse and satisfying. The cumulative effect of eating from this book and t...

The book assumes, as the title indicates, that you already desire to cook natural, minimally processed, whole, healthy foods (and that you are probably vegetarian). If you're not yet sold on natural cooking, please put this book down, go read Michael Pollan (In Defense of Food and/or Food Rules)...

This cookbook is really inspiring and informative; it really makes you reexamine what you're eating and seeing how much of it you could make into food that actually benefits your body. Something about the way it's organized irks me though - it's not really a leaf-through kind of book and there ar...

This is probably one of my favorite cookbook finds ever, for a variety of reasons. First--it's beautiful. The graphic design and photography are gorgeous. Second--it's split up in a different, but more logical way--for example, recipes by food color, nutrition, etc., rather than by meat, bread, e...

Again, I am unable to add stars.
I love Heidi Swanson and have been a huge fan of her blog, 101 Cookbooks, for many years. This cookbook is for those of us who would, if presented with the opportunity to make either chocolate chip cookies, or mesquite chocolate chip cookies, would claim...

Even if you never cook a single recipe from this book, it' worth owning. If not for the info on natural grains and flours and sweeteners, then for the sheer beauty of the book. It's the kind of cookbook you keep on your nightstand next to your novel du jour. The kind that inspires you to spend ha...

Full of easy healthy recipes and beautiful pictures.
I have not followed a single one of the recipes word for word, so I can not comment in that regard. But, I find this book great for motivation and direction when I'm not feeling particularly inspired to cook healthy foods or I had a new ingredi...
