Start your new year’s resolutions off on the right foot with the Moosewood Restaurant Favorites cookbook.
A new year means new beginnings. In our family, we have committed to trying new recipes and cooking meals that incorporate foods that taste great but are also great for us! It has been such a lifesaver to come across the Moosewood Restaurant Favorites cookbook.
Moosewood Restaurant is a natural foods restaurant in Ithaca, NY, and has been serving vegan, vegetarian and pescetarian meals since 1973. This newest cookbook features 250 of their favorite – and most requested – recipes, many of which are vegan and gluten free.
The collective of cooks ensures that the recipes are varied and represent cuisines and tastes from all over the world. Little M and I leafed through the book and spotted dishes from India, Peru, Mexico and more! We tend to make dal dishes quite frequently and the Red Lentil Soup with Ginger and Cilantro recipe has become a new favorite in our house. It is simple and oh so delicious and hearty! The Peruvian Quinoa Salad is a sure winner and an easy way to add more quinoa to your weekly diet. Little M likes looking through the cookbook and highlighting recipes we should try to make. Is it any surprise that their Apple Spice Cake with Sesame Seeds made the cut?
I find new recipes to try every time I read Moosewood Restaurant Favorites and it has already become a staple in our home. Can’t wait to try out one of the dishes? Here is their recipe for Confetti Kale Slaw and Caribbean Yellow Rice and Pigeon Peas.
