The Unofficial "Other Cookbooks Not Listed" Thread
I thought I would start a thread for recipe reviews of cookbooks that don't have a thread, and probably don't need a thread.
So if you are using older cookbooks, or cookbooks without a thread, I'd love to hear from you here.

Italian Stew with Winter Squash and Chickpeas from Moosewood Restaurant Cooking for Health:
This is a mix of butternut squash, canned tomatoes with carrots, bell pepper and kale simmered with chickpeas with a basil-thyme flavour. The splash of red wine vinegar at the end is an important part to lighten the dish. Definitely chockful of healthy ingredients. Delicious pairing of ingredients. A light, healthy stew. I didn't even serve it with a grain, it was that filling.
Now that's a meal Tweety!

Japanese Cooking: Contemporary and traditional
Carrot and tofu scramble - I didn't use a lb of carrots like she suggested but I did use one large carrot which was plenty. This was so simple and fast to make but the taste was fantastic! The author is right- the sweetness of the carrot works well in this dish. I used the optional sesame seeds, drizzled some sriracha on top, and called it dinner.
Spinach Orange Yam Soup from ExtraVeganZa
I wasn't expecting to like this soup as much as I do. The yams blend to be ultra-creamy, the orange is slightly acidic but works well and there is this hidden flavour quandry with the dill and ginger (in a great way!). It would still be nice without the spinach, but the spinach adds a nice bulk. Tasty and healthy!
Japanese Winter Stew from Moosewood Restaurant Cooking for Health:
OK, I modified it a bit, but just the veggies, and I still think this was a wonderful stew. Sometimes I am leery of making Japanese dishes from non-Japanese cookbooks, but this was really good. I subbed daikon for the turnip, added in 100g of chopped enoki mushrooms and used 4 oz baby spinach instead of mustard greens. Topped with 2-3 chopped green onions when serving with a sprinkle of sesame oil. Yum!
