I'm excited to be participating in VeganMoFo/Vegan Month of Food for the first time this year! Throughout this month I'll be trying recipes from different vegan cookbooks with mini-reviews of each cookbook. I hope to post at least every weekday.
One of DH's favorite meals is falafel and the Baked Falafel from Isa Chandra Moskowitz's book Appetite for Reduction: 125 Fast and Filling Low-fat Vegan Recipes is my favorite falafel recipe of all time. I really think it is better than fried falafel. Here it is served with her equally delicious Green Goddess Dressing in pita bread.
I have talked before here about how much I like this book. If you're seeking healthy vegan recipes, Appetite for Reduction should be on your bookshelf. There is a center section of color photos and all the recipes include a nutritional analysis. Some oil is used but it is minimal. One of the strengths of the book is the number of salad and salad dressing recipes which oddly enough I don't notice in many vegetarian cookbooks. There are no dessert recipes so look elsewhere if you're seeking lowfat cupcakes and cookies. I originally started with the Kindle version of this book but there were some typos so I returned it in for the print version.
The recipes I've tried and liked from the book include the Everyday Chickpea-Quinoa Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette, Sushi Roll Edamame Salad with Green Onion Miso Vinaigrette, Caesar Salad with Eggplant Bacon and Caesar Chavez Dressing, Peanut-Lime Dragon Dressing, Caulipots, OMG Oven-Baked Onion Rings, Pizza Hummus, and Chili-Lime Rubbed Tofu.
