Book Description

From Booklist Count on the American Heart Association to consistently deliver top-quality and top-tasting healthy recipe collections; its version of ethnic cuisines with more than 200 choices is no exception. Instead of simply streamlining ingredients or substituting other foodstuffs, the chefs have in many cases altered traditional dishes, usually for the better. The once duck-and goose-laden bean stew of France now becomes a meatless cassoulet. Traditional Greek avgolemono now features only four ingredients--low-sodium chicken broth, dried dillweed, orzo, and fresh lemon juice--to create a 68-calorie version of the original lemon soup. Complete with nutritional analyses, this eight-cuisine compilation is intended for any type of palate, for any level of cook.
