If the word “healthy” is a major turnoff when looking for recipes, you are about to be pleasantly surprised! Carrie Forrest MBA, MPH, who has authored several cookbooks and focuses on healthy dishes, has outdone herself in The Quick & Easy Healthy Cookbook: 125 Delicious Recipes Ready in 30 Minutes or Less. This excellent cookbook is full of dishes that most of us actually want to make and serve.
Today I made the Coconut–Green Curry Soup with Beef and Vegetables; the recipe is easy to follow and the results are yummy. There are actually a dozen or more recipes from this book in my queue: Mediterranean Beef Bowl, Kung Pao Shrimp (several other shrimp dishes, too), Mediterranean Couscous Salad, and Whole Wheat Parmesan Drop Biscuits, to name a few, and none of my family members will have any idea they are eating healthy.
The recipes are mostly easy to put together, have minimal ingredients, and the instructions are quick to follow. I also found that several of them were easy to adapt to my slow cooker, Instant Pot®, and air fryer. This is a bonus when trying to save time. There is something here for everyone.
The only negative to this cookbook is that there aren’t enough photographs. There are so many great dishes, and readers will be at a loss as to what they are supposed to look like. However, reading the recipes and adding the ingredients together in your mind will help you picture what they should look like, and preparing them will certainly make it possible to make your own pictures – not ideal, but suitable.
Highly recommended, this cookbook takes healthy to a new realm and readers and cooks will enjoy serving “healthy” without the recipients knowing what they are actually getting.
