Mostly Healthy

Maybe just me, but if I am reading a cookbook and there are too many ingredients I either don't know or have to shop at a special store for, I won't cook the dish. Healthyish, the new cookbook by Lindsay Maitland Hunt, is not that book. Filled with simple and appealing foods, this book is tailored for cooks seeking a more balanced diet. In chapters for breakfasts, lunches, dinners, snacks, and more, Hunt employs an impressive range of time-saving techniques that minimize prep and cleanup. Dishes such as cozy bean and egg skillet for two, kimchi-fried faro, and one-pan crispy chicken with herbed potatoes make smart use of staples such as precooked grains, canned beans, and rotisserie chicken. Recipes for "go-to" components such as compound butters and quick pickles make it easy to jazz up everyday meals like salads and toast. Whether you like to leave cooking till the last minute or enjoy whipping up a big batch of something to eat throughout the week, this book will serve you well!  ML
