Smorgasbowl: Recipes and Techniques for Creating Satisfying Meals with Endless Variation is a fun cookbook using healthy ingredients to make meals in a bowl.

Almost everyone wants to eat healthy, but also wants to eat dishes that are actually fun and unique – no same-old, same-old that can get very boring. These dishes contain lots of whole grains and vegetables, as well as lean meats, fish, and poultry, so each bowl has everything for a well-balanced meal. Carruthers has used her imagination and presented dishes that are colorful and delicious. They are mostly easy to make, and will appeal to everyone.

Many of the ingredients called for are a bit different from the usual staples, so a trip to the supermarket will be necessary, but it’s actually nice to have healthy ingredients on the pantry shelves rather than junk food. While the dishes presented are very appealing, there is room for variation, and that’s one of the best parts of the book – cooks can vary the bowls to contain their favorite ingredients and also ingredients that appeal to picky family members and friends. Perusing through the book will give everyone ideas that will make for individualized dishes. The photographs are beautiful and enticing, which can make it difficult to choose what to make, but the recipes are written in traditional recipe form, and are concise and easy-to-follow. This book is a fun one to add to any recipe collection.
