Revised and better than ever, One Pot Meals for People with Diabetes is your solution to delicious meals in a snap. Nothing is easier than 'one-pot' cooking - prepare your ingredients, combine, and let them cook! And with recipes that cover everything from pasta to casseroles to hearty sandwiches, you've got options for any appetite. Recipes include: Italian Chicken with Peppers and Onions; Fresh Salmon Chowder; Stick-to-the-Ribs Beef Stew; Shepherd's Pie; and Easy Beef and Black Bean Chili.
While I primarily bought this book to prepare meals for my diabetic husband, I find I'm enjoying the food too. There is a good range of 'cooker to plate' meals, as well as 'slow-cooker' meals, and meals to cover most palates. The soup chapter is excellent. I was expecting a lot of broth-based soups, but there is plenty of hearty soups to choose from such as Ham & Bean Soup, Manhattan-Style Clam Chowder and Tomato-Sweet Potato Bisque. I'm having fun working through the recipes from cover to cover. Most of the recipes are very easy to prepare with readily available ingredients. The print is a good size and is easy to read. The only flaw I have with the actual book itself is that it would have been easier to use in the kitchen if it was spiral-bound. Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in cooking healthy meals, diabetic or not.
Publishers Weekly, 2002-10-21 Experienced cookbook authors Glick (The Diabetes Snack) and Baggett (Eat Your Vegetables) have again joined forces to provide some culinary assistance to people with diabetes. The strength of these recipes is that they are varied enough to please almost every palate, as the authors have a good knowledge of herbs and spices and use it creatively here. Instructions are clearly presented for preparing many main dishes, such as soups, salads and hot dishes that feature meat, fish and poultry. Vegetarian choices include Tamale Pie, Broccoli Cheese Omelette and Macaroni Lasagna, and they all fall within the current American Diabetes Association recommendations; while the recipes are not all fat free, the authors have limited the amounts of animal fat. Each recipe lists the nutritional exchanges as well as the calories, fat, cholesterol, sodium, protein and carbohydrates contained in that particular dish. The "one pot" in the title may define dishes that can be cooked in a microwave, crock pot, skillet or oven. Although Glick and Baggett include a chapter on "Super-Quick Dinners," in some cases a cook would have to move pretty quickly to prepare the recipe in the time allotted. Otherwise, this is a useful and appetizing collection. (Nov.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
