Good news – having fun with your food is not just for silly kids! Skim the pages of this colorful funfest of food and count the low calories in these carb-lite delights. Even men who “don’t eat green” will probably want to try out the easy to prepare, hearty dishes.
Most of the No-Potato Passover recipes are as casual as the title’s spelling: some include only six ingredients and limited prep time – half to one full hour. They’re good for heart health and waistlines, too.
Full-color pictures in the No-Potato Passover: A Journey of Food, Travel & Color demonstrate the finished products. A graduate of the French Culinary Institute, author Aviva Kanoff blended her food prep knowledge with a degree in studio art from Hunter College. She took photos while collecting delicious, simple recipes native to specific spots around the world. The end result is your way out of the “rut” that Kanoff insists many cooks dig for themselves. Relying on a too-common standby of three to four meals, we tend to bore our taste buds and fellow diners even more at the 24 usually potato-heavy Passover meals. The No-Potato Passover provides an easy way out of the “Not this again?” and “Did we buy prunes?” problem.
How much variety exists in this novel approach to Pesach dining? Think Passover Pesto, meaty matza balls, lavender mint chicken and no-bake chocolate mousse pie. Super foods that pack the power of high nutrition with few calories are included, too.
If you’re like many Pesach cooks wondering what to do with Passover cake meal, you’re in for delicious delights with the desert section. Think “Viennese Crunch” or “Raspberry Shortcake Trifle” among other possibilities. Consider buying two copies of the cookbook so you and anyone looking over your shoulder won’t fight over who’s having more fun with it at any given time.
The book has only problem: like many others, it doesn’t lay flat when you want to follow a recipe. With a clear plastic cookbook protector, though, this 168-page hardcover stays put without closing itself on the instructions you need. But bless her heart, Kanoff included such intriguing photos of faraway places that you’ll be tempted to flip through the pages. The No Potato Passover: A Journey of Food, Travel & Color is an education into cuisine as the result of topography and geography! Share it with friends and family for a delicious holiday on many levels.
