Description: The warning has been sounded loud and clear: reduce your intake of red meats, salt, eggs, butter, and cream -- or run the risk of high blood pressure, heart problems, and cancer. But does this mean that all your favorite foods must be forsaken, or that bland is better? Not at all! Fortunately, Asian cuisines offer a wonderful selection of delicious, colorful, and easy-to-prepare dishes that actually help to promote better health.
The Good-for-Your-Health All-Asian Cookbook presents over 220 exciting Asian dishes -- from eleven Asian countries, from Japan to Pakistan -- that are low in fat and cholesterol, low in salt, and low in calories. Very little oil or fat is used in the recipes, and salt and MSG have been wholly eliminated. Instead, generous use is made of Asia's miracles of flavor and aroma: garlic and fresh ginger root, to maintain full-bodied richness; spices and herbs, to add zest; rice wines, lemon juice, and vinegar, to provide the sultry pungency of sweet-and-sour dishes; and peppers and chilies, for those who like a little more "heat" in their lives.
From Japan's simple "Broiled Fish with Sesame Seeds" and China's delectable "Pot Stickers" to Thailand's never-fails-to-please "Hot-and-Sour Shrimp Soup" and India's mouth-watering "Chicken with Spices' -- this cookbook has a recipe for every palate and for every occasion. The author has also provided: fat/cholesterol/sodium counts for each recipe; good-tasting substitutes (for many of the unhealthy ingredients used in traditional recipes) that make the food healthier while still maintaining authentic flavors; the history and background of all the countries from which recipes have been selected, as well as a discussion of each country's cuisine; an extensive bibliography; and two handy, easy-to-use indexes.
For anyone wishing to eat better for better health, this new collection of the best of Asian cuisines is truly the only easy-to-follow good-for-your-health all-Asian cookbook that no one who loves good food and good health can afford to be without.
