    For years, two of my favorite cookbooks were the original Moosewood Cookbook and The Enchanted Brocoli Forest, another Moosewood title. I loved the recipes, the quirky illustrations, and the whole philosophy behind these books. Several dozen recipes from the books became family favorites. Alas, as the years progressed and the pounds accumulated, I found that those recipes became reserved for special occasions or splurges, as almost invariably they contained too much fat -- butter in particular. W For years, two of my favorite cookbooks were the original Moosewood Cookbook and The Enchanted Brocoli Forest, another Moosewood title. I loved the recipes, the quirky illustrations, and the whole philosophy behind these books. Several dozen recipes from the books became family favorites. Alas, as the years progressed and the pounds accumulated, I found that those recipes became reserved for special occasions or splurges, as almost invariably they contained too much fat -- butter in particular. When I switched to (mostly) low-fat cooking, I pretty much gave up on Moosewood. Then, lo and behold, while perusing the cookbooks at the library the other day, what should I spy but this title. I immediately checked it out, took it home, and began to pour over the recipes, marking ones I wanted to try with scraps of paper. Soon I had a book stuffed full of paper markers, so I knew I needed a copy, which I promptly ordered. Since that initial paper bookmark binge, I've had a chance to sample several of the recipes in the book, and so far the results have been promising. What I especially like about the Moosewood Cookbooks is that there isn't great emphasis on following recipes exactly. I've never been able to follow any recipe exactly (which is why I never make souffl├ęs), so I like that Moosewood recipes invariably say, "If you wish, you can add..." or "Season with (X) to taste." "(X) can be substituted..." "Or any (x) you prefer..." That's my kind of recipe. But a good cookbook does more than provide recipes. It provides inspiration. This cookbook makes me excited about low-fat cooking. Not once but twice in the past week I've gone out to shop for new ingredients, and I have another shopping trip planned tomorrow to get some specialty items I've never cooked with (seitan [a kind of wheat gluten:], konbu [a kind of seaweed:], and arborio rice [for risotto:]). Don't get me wrong - this isn't the sort of cookbook that relies on a lot of exotic ingredients. In fact, I planned this evening's meal centered on a lovely dried-and-fresh mushroom soup, and I have all the ingredients in the pantry already. But it's the kind of book that makes me think, "Wow, that sounds neat. Let's try it." By the way, if you're not familiar with the Moosewood Cookbooks, they are mostly vegetarian. In fact, my original two Moosewood Cookbooks were completely vegetarian, but this low-fat book has a chapter devoted to fish. We happen to eat fish and chicken, but I'd say at least a third of our dinners are entirely vegetarian. However, even meat lovers will find some great ways to prepare side dishes, breads, and soups in this book.

    I know, right, low-fat? But when I was flipping through it in the bookstore I couldn't find a single recipe I wouldn't make. And so far all of them have been really delicious, except the muffins where you replace the butter with applesauce. They had a weird texture. Butter is best. But the Vietnamese hot & sour soup was/is awesome. I might sprinkle the leftover on my peas to keep the squirrels away... I know, right, low-fat?

    Moosewood Low Fat Favorites is simply the best cookbook I own. The recipes are vegetarian (not vegan) but you definetly do not have to be a vegetarian to enjoy these wonderful, delicious recipes. I am a mother of four children ranging from ages 16-5 years and I usually look for easy to prepare, visually appealing, great tasting meals and this book delivers on all fronts. Here are just a few of my families favorites; Spanish Pepper Frittata, Middle Eastern Chickpeas with Spinach, Lighter Lasagna, Moosewood Low Fat Favorites is simply the best cookbook I own.

Here are just a few of my families favorites; Spanish Pepper Frittata, Middle Eastern Chickpeas with Spinach, Lighter Lasagna, Stuffed Manicotti Verde and Eggplant Parmesan. We have a garden that overflows with vegetables and last night I made the Cucumbers Vinagrette a simple dish that was completely gone by the end of the meal. Broiled Zucchini with Herbs is a fantastic way to use up this over abundant veggie. Each recipe is accompanied by the serivng analysis which includes; calories, fat, protein, carbohydrates, and fiber as well as others items. The back of the book has a Glossary of Cooking Techniques and Terms which is helpful if you are unfamiliar with preparing some of the items in the recipes such as tofu, tempeh, bulgur etc. A Guide to Ingredients section gives a detailed description of ingredients that may be unfamiliar including; asian fish sauce, berbere, cornichons and fenugreek seeds to name a few. One of the best details is that each recipe has menu suggestions listed under it, for example, Seasoned Steamed Artichokes menu suggestions include; "Try them drizzled with Yogurt Tahini Dressing before Middle Eastern Chickpeas with Spinach or with Tabouli Salad with greens." It takes the guesswork out of meal planning. This is a great cookbook!

    Just about all of the cookbooks from the Moosewood Collective are wonderful. Lots of veggies, simple straight forward recipes, and clear descriptions. This one has some great recipes. Savory Onion Marmalade is awesome on foccacia, Middle eastern Cannellini Patties and the Middle Eastern Chickpeas with Spinach are tasty and I love the Fat Tuesday Red Beans and Rice.

But, this collection feels dated with it's discussion of the importance of low/no fat and quite a few of the recipes would have me scrambling for fussy additions to recipes: things like fruit puree, applesauce, cottage cheese and egg whites in order to get to that "low-fat" qualification. Why mess up Avocado guacamole with the addition of cottage cheese? The book is a keeper but it doesn't match up to Moosewood Cooks At Home for simple ease. And the new Moosewood Cooking for Health has captured my attention for now.

    What I like about this cookbook is that included with each recipe are suggestions for other recipes in the book that go well with it. This makes it very easy to plan meals in advance and have all the different dishes go together. Also, the recipes are simple and delicious.

    Thanks to a library book sale I own a copy. Uses old school measurements and has nutritional data. Also contains fish recipes, most Moosewood books contain only vegetarian recipes, surprise! Has an OK chapter on nutrition.

    sad that there aren't more vegan recipes or at least they aren't easily called out (some recipes even have fish which I don't consider vegetarian :( ) . Will be trying some things though.

    I love recipe books. I only cook occasionally, but I love to read recipes and think about shopping for the items and preparing the food. So I purchase recipe books when I find them for reasonable prices. I also have have a fascination for Moosewood Restaurant. I think it started when we lived in BC. We had a friend there who was a fantastic cook, often cooked vegetarian, and had several Moosewood recipe books on his kitchen shelf. So, I was a sucker for this book when I saw it recently at a used I love recipe books.

There are two things I wish for from the book. First, I love pictures. Second, I wish there was some low-carb recipes as well. But I shouldn't complain. Nothing better than a deal! I'm looking forward to trying a few of the recipes. Enjoy! Peter Scholtens

    I put this low-fat vegetarian cookbook to a true test - Thanksgiving dinner for 6 non-vegetarians who don't necessarily care about low-fat recipes (they did make turkey). Toward the back of the book there's a page with their recommendations for different big food events (eg Thanksgiving) and this is the list I used to build the Thanksgiving menu. Each dish had its fans and detractors, though I enjoyed all of them. For the most part everything was well described.

I did run into a few problems with the Holiday Cranberry Squash recipe - removing a baking pan filled with hot water from the oven is difficult. The recipes I've tried don't feel like low-fat recipes - the Moosewood collective know how to sneak healthy meals under the guise of good food.

    My father is on the cardiac diet, and it's been a challenge finding recipes that either have 125mg/sodium per serving or can be adapted to fit that dosage. This cookbook is great because it has so many low-fat and low-sodium dishes - my family doesn't feel like they're suffering! Southwestern Corn and Potato Soup (pg. 102), Sweet Potato and Black Bean Burritos (pg. 172), Curried Sweet Potato Roti (pg. 230), and Caribbean Stew (pg. 260) are just a few of the recipes we've tried so far.

Disclaimer: The Burritos have a horrific amount of salt (1401 mg), but I omitted the salt and rinsed the black beans, which cut down the salt content a LOT. The dinner still tasted delicious.

    Studies show that vegetarians tend to gain weight initially once they stop eating meat. Due to the lack of meat protein, they compensate with fat and carbs. Also, certain vegetarian classics like heavy Eggplant Parmigiana may always not be the most diet-friendly.

    It's a great collection of recipes for anyone looking for low-fat recipes. There are sections on describing ingredients, their uses, and their nutritive value, and each recipe has its own nutrition label based on standard serving sizes. There are certain caveats about using this book, however. The recipes themselves are easy to execute, but I often find it difficult locating or justify paying for certain (expensive) ingredients given a limited budget and sometimes a time constraint.

    This has been a go-to cookbook in my household for years. Despite that, I have only really used it for two recipes - the New England squash soup and the three sisters stew. The squash soup is a great winter soup and it freezes really well. I would recommend doubling up on the mushrooms that garnish it since they are pretty tasty. The three sisters stew is a total colon blower - so beware. We lovingly refer to it as "soupy poopy."

I know that "low-fat" and "vegetarian" will send many people running to the hills, but I have tried so many recipes from this cookbook, and let me assure you that you won't miss the meat and you won't notice it's low-fat. No, really! There are a ton of recipes in this book, and there's a recipe for every palate...the flavors span the globe several times over. I love Moosewood!

    I love so many recipes in this book. They put together combinations of different vegetables that I would never have imagined. I love how they list the nutritional info and recommend other dishes to go along with each recipe. My favorite recipe right now is the seasoned steamed artichokes on page 311. So easy and tasty! I make it at least once a month.

    This is a good cookbook for inspiration and to get out of a cooking rut. Everything I've made from it has turned out really well. I'd give it 5 stars if it was a little more accessible. The recipes have a tendency to have a lot of ingredients that I don't normally stock and require a bit more time than I have. I generally can only use on the weekends.

    I rarely buy cookbooks since many of them only have a handful of recipes I want to try. Well, I'm glad I now own this one! It is FULL of delicious looking recipes. My copy is feathered with bookmarks of all the dishes I want to try. There are also a ton of great tips and the glossaries in the back are fabulous.

    Absolutely delicious, healthy recipes. I love that full nutritional information is given for each recipe. Warning though: the recipes in this book tend to be pretty complicated, so I wouldn't work with this cookbook unless you had a fair amount of time to prepare meals. I tend to cook from this on the weekends, and go with something simpler for during the week. Absolutely delicious, healthy recipes. I love that full nutritional information is given for each recipe.

    I know some people won't consider this a book you really read, but as far as cookbooks go, I love it!!! This cookbook has so many great recipes and almost all of them are healthy. Many of the recipes are also pretty quick and easy. Also, although this is a vegetarian cookbook, they do cook with fish which I love. Really, I can't say enough good things about this cookbook!

    I am glad I borrowed this from the library. I did NOT like this cookbook at all. The recipes didn't seem appealing, there were no pictures (though pictures are not a requirement for my cookbooks), and I felt like the book played heavily on the renown of the restaurant. Until I picked up the cookbook, I'd never heard of the restaurant. I am glad I borrowed this from the library. I did NOT like this cookbook at all.

    Loving the spinach-artichoke dip, the chilaquiles, and the section on sauces in this book. The layout is wonderful, the directions are simple. I didn't realize this was vegetarian(/pescatarian) when I picked it up (otherwise I probably wouldn't have), but I'm not sorry. I wish it had pictures, but the book is thick enough as it is.

    I've only tried one recipe from this cookbook so far, but it was tasty and simple. I like the fact that most of the recipes included here use easy-access, fresh ingredients--and not an unending list, either. Busy people need these kinds of recipes. All in all, it makes me want to travel and partake of the menu at the actual Moosewood restaurant someday. For now, this is a good start.

    Not as good as the other Moosewood cookbooks but a good resource if you need to cut back on the fats. Try the cauliflower with yogurt curry sauce...easy and delicious! Works well for both fresh cauliflower or frozen.

    Another encyclopedic tome that not only gives you recipes to use ingredients, but also teaches you the basics of what the ingredients are and how they work. The lists of grains, vegetables, and beans, and how to cook them, are indispensible.
