Super Foods Every Day by Sue Quinn is beautifully presented and manages to be more than just a recipe book. It has information about nutrition, cooking techniques and specific food items at the beginning and throughout.
The recipes are straight forward to follow and, although there are obviously some specific, or less wideley available, ingredients required for certain recipes, they are all fairly easy to get hold of in the right shops, as far as I can tell. The accompanying images reinforce how delicious these dishes sound, and the inclusion of the images of both the raw ingredients and then the finished cooked dish makes it so much easier to tell if you’ve got all the right ingredients in the right form before you start! This is a great feature that I feel a lot of recipe books miss.
This isn’t necessarily a recipe book for if you’re after a really quick dish, or if you’re craving comfort food (well, obviously not- because these recipes are healthy!) but if you’re wanting to try a healthier approach to food in the New Year then I’d highly recommend Super Foods Every Day– it contains 65 recipes which all look pretty damn tasty to me!
[My Rating: 4/5]
