    1. UPDATE 6 24 2013 Mung beans life changing.Heidi Swanson encourages her readers to experiment, using new things, or old things in new ways.I grilled two really large oyster mushrooms that I had lightly coated in olive oil, salt, pepper and dried sage Chopped them up and added them to sauteed Lacinato kale, golden beet greens, diced Medjool dates and shallots I added some syrup that I make but you could use agave nectar instead Then I added some already cooked mung beans that I had Some sea salt t [...]

    2. While I live with Heidi and this is completely biased, I did test many of these recipes and have definitely eaten every one at least once For a novice cook like myself, the food is not difficult to make, is interesting, diverse and satisfying The cumulative effect of eating from this book and the food found Heidi s site over the course of several years is I feel great and enjoy food than ever.

    3. The book assumes, as the title indicates, that you already desire to cook natural, minimally processed, whole, healthy foods and that you are probably vegetarian If you re not yet sold on natural cooking, please put this book down, go read Michael Pollan In Defense of Food and or Food Rules and come back when you can appreciate what this book wants to tell you although nothing has yet convinced me to be vegetarian, but I now buy better meat Helpfully, this book also assumes that you do things li [...]

    4. This cookbook is really inspiring and informative it really makes you reexamine what you re eating and seeing how much of it you could make into food that actually benefits your body Something about the way it s organized irks me though it s not really a leaf through kind of book and there aren t that many recipes Also, Heidi gives good advice for slowly substituting natural sweeteners and leaveners etc into your cooking instead of the gross, gross white flour and sugar that we re used to, but t [...]

    5. If you have only one cookbook in your house, this should be the one The recipes are fulfilling in every sense of the word beautiful to look at, wonderful to eat, splendidly friendly to prepare, and the food leaves you nourished and satisfied.There are acouple of ingredients that are tricky to find if you don t have access to cosmopolitian culinary shops, but with a little creativity there is always a fix Great graphics, after all what is a cookbook without visual flair This book stays front and [...]

    6. I love this cookbook I REALLY love this cookbook I am not a vegetarian but do appreciate whole foods and I love that this cookbook utilizes whole grains and vegetables with a upscale and current feel than most vegetarian cookbooks Heidi also gets creative with ingredients not all ingredients can be found at your local mega supermarket Some may criticize the book for this, but Heidi does provide names and ordering information for suppliers of any hard to find ingredients Most ingredients, though [...]

    7. This is probably one of my favorite cookbook finds ever, for a variety of reasons First it s beautiful The graphic design and photography are gorgeous Second it s split up in a different, but logical way for example, recipes by food color, nutrition, etc rather than by meat, bread, etc Third the recipes are all easy, relatively cheap, healthy, and awesome One of the best soba noodle recipes I ve ever made This is the way I try to cook all the time at home, but perfected Swanson gives very helpf [...]

    8. Again, I am unable to add stars.Here I love Heidi Swanson and have been a huge fan of her blog, 101 Cookbooks, for many years This cookbook is for those of us who would, if presented with the opportunity to make either chocolate chip cookies, or mesquite chocolate chip cookies, would claim territory over the mesquite chocolate chip cookies without batting an eye I made em, I loved em I don t use this cookbook everyday I use it on weekends after cleaning the kitchen, which upon being rendered spo [...]

    9. Even if you never cook a single recipe from this book, it worth owning If not for the info on natural grains and flours and sweeteners, then for the sheer beauty of the book It s the kind of cookbook you keep on your nightstand next to your novel du jour The kind that inspires you to spend half a day at the farmer s market, and the other half in your kitchen, celebrating beautiful, natural, colorful foods.

    10. Full of easy healthy recipes and beautiful pictures I have not followed a single one of the recipes word for word, so I can not comment in that regard But, I find this book great for motivation and direction when I m not feeling particularly inspired to cook healthy foods or I had a new ingredient I wanted to incorporate into a basic dish.

    11. I like that this book assumes that you want to cook healthy she doesn t lecture you, or bog you down with how she came to cook this way The book is broken down into 5 fairly basic healthy eating principles eat the rainbow, use natural sweeteners, etc that are not intimidating at all She has some very different, good salads like the split green bean one , and the ginger amaranth shortbread was also great I liked her explanations and notes, and found them to be helpful.If you re looking to cook h [...]

    12. This cookbook is by the blogger behind 101 Cookbooks which is one of my absolute favorites I have received so many really good recipes from 101 that I just had to have this cookbook.The recipes have won over even the most hard core nonveggie, non organic, non anything healthy people in my life Every meal cooked from these recipes is greeted with Oh my goodness This is really good I need this recipe Is there Need I say Only that you will like the blog and this cookbook The way she writes is per [...]

    13. I have been reading a lot about healthier foods and whole foods, and have been looking for a good cookbook to give me ideas on meals I can make The book that I REALLY want I cannot get from our library, so I have book looking into others and this is the first one I tried I really like that the author of this gave lots of information on healthy foods and what they re good for I think this book may be better suited for a experiences cook, someone that already has a good amount of knowledge of foo [...]

    14. Ok, I really love this cookbook It has some amazing recipes in it, but importantly it gives information on substituting flours and oils Gives nutrient information and a helpful guide to put healthful choices in your pantry Avoid canola oil, which changes nutrient content when heated, use flaxseed oil, almond oil or many, many others Keep whole wheat pastry flour or white whole wheat flour because you can substitute it for all purpose flour which has almost zero nutrients and gain nutrients in y [...]

    15. This author has a blog called 101 Cookbooks that I stumbled upon one day She posts simple vegetarian recipes, mostly using in season produce from the farmers market Now, she lives in San Francisco, which makes me insanely jealous because the local food scene there is amazingapricots, pomegranates, almonds, orangesMakes a WI girl just drool thinking about all the goodies at the market there I would call her style of cooking California Cuisine , light, healthy, fresh meals.After reading her blog f [...]

    16. I ve tried several recipes from this book, all to great success However, in none of the cases did I follow the recipe exactly, substituting chicken broth for vegetable and chicken for tofu, green curry paste for red, linguine for udon But all of the dishes were delicious, and her ideas are inspiring This is going on my to buy list So far I m loving this cookbook The design is beautiful, the recipes are approachable, and her philosophy isn t dogmatic, like a lot of whole foods books can be I pla [...]

    17. As opposed to a traditional cookbook with a slew of recipes, this cookbook is primarily focused on how to integrate and substitute in whole and comparatively less common ingredients for their heavily processed and ubiquitous counterparts It suggests mixing in nontraditional grains and fats, as well as exploring the inclusion of a handful of ayurvedic spices, traditional herbal remedies, etc This cookbook brings a core number of solid recipes to bear for the curious cook, or for the person stuck [...]

    18. The passages describing ingredients were really useful The descriptions included both health benefits and how the ingredient could be used That s the kind of information I want to become a creative cook.Although I get her objection to canola oil, we ve worked way too hard to lower our saturated fats to go back to butter for baking and higher temperature sauteeing now.The recipes seemed fussy to me right now every one had either a new ingredient which was okay since that was the point of the boo [...]

    19. I m a huge fan of 101 Cookbooks, so I went to buy it and was a little sad when I ended up not doing so Although I sat in the bookstore and read much of it Did not intend to do that Somehow, it seemed like the recipes she chose to include were the ones that did not appeal to me.First, too many involved gluten can t have or simply ingredients I don t like Second, the tone of the book seemed much preachier than her blog Finally, the beautifully simple or elegant recipes were less present that I wou [...]

    20. Fantastic book about some of the common healthy food staples and how to use them in tasty recipes What I found special about the book was its fusion palette I really enjoy using tastes from all over the world and Swanson consistently employs the easily available nonstandard american spices and flavor techniques in her recipes a kitchen expanding treat She has a great teff wedge recipe, very polenta like but without the mega agra corp corn and an easy homemade power bar recipe The only reason I [...]

    21. I have made a few recipes from both this cookbook and Super Natural Every Day Honestly, without them in front of me I can t remember which recipes were from which cookbookbut they have all been good, so that s saying something I m not sure I have made any of these recipes as written though I have substituted an ingredient here or there, but I don t think that makes a big difference when it comes to Heidi s recipes, because her cooking style is very much use what s on hand She gives suggestions f [...]

    22. In Super Natural Cooking, readers of Heidi s blog, 101 Cookbooks, get of what they ve come to expect her photography, the way she puts each recipe in context what inspired it or how it came about or who it was made for , and of course her recipes, which are frequented by salads, soups, bowls of grains and veggies and baked goods, esp cookies I think the target audience for Super Natural Cooking would be people who are already cooking, but who want to incorporate a wider variety of ingredients f [...]

    23. For the adventurous cook and artsy paper lover lots of gorgeous colorful prints on thick paper who wants to try baking with whole grain flours mesquite, amaranth, quinoa , branch out to natural sugars, and add whole foods to homemade meals I liked the Crunchy Apple and Cabbage Salad enjoyed it for a few days without getting tired of it , and hope soon to try the Wheat Berry Salad with Citrus, toasted Pine Nuts, Feta and Spinach I have a feeling the Sweet Potato Spoon Bread and the Thin Mint Coo [...]

    24. I m still exploring this cookbook, but as a long time somewhat reader of Heidi Swanson s blog, I just love her approach to cooking and food The photos are stunning as well Some of my favourite recipes to eat come from her While all the recipes are vegetarian, and can be veganized easily, as most dairy is used as some sort of garnish or accompanying item, some of her recipes are totally better with cheese There I said it There was a farro and asparagus recipe that would have been PERFECT with som [...]

    25. One of the best vegetarian cookbooks I ve ever used The recipes are clear, well written, and oh so tasty Most of recipes require ingredients I actually have in the pantry, compared to some vegetarian tomes that seem to use nothing but exotic unavailable, expensive stuff With Heidi s recipes, if I don t have an ingredient on hand, it s usually available in our local stores She suggests ingredient alternatives, too, which is always helpful Note I originaly found Heidi online 101cookbooks her websi [...]

    26. This is one of the best healthy cookbooks I ve ever seen Sure, the ingredients are daunting the first time you flip through I received it for my birthday and promptly shelved it for months after perusing it the first time , but the simplicity of the recipes makes the extra effort of finding the ingredients worth it I have never been unhappy with any of the dishes I have made This is a great gateway cookbook to get you cooking with natural ingredients, making items from scratch, and eating REA [...]

    27. Heidi has a recipe for BAKING POWDER.The tone is a little different than 101cookbooks, clearly heavily edited and so a little less friendly It s also organized a little strangely, in large vague categories This doesn t matter that much, though, since the book is really informative, open, and plain spoken You never want a threatening cookbook, especially since so many people have complexes about food and food production in the US This one makes you think that amaranth is just another delicious t [...]

    28. this is a beautiful cookbook she is a photographer as well and i like almost everything i have made from it i definitely recommend it, however i still frequently go to her 101 cookbooks website and get recipes from there My only quibble with Heidi is that she has all these delicious recipes for farro, which is ridiculously expensive another thing i really like about her recipes is that they seem very easy to amend and substitute, so i use them as a base and then add stuff based on what is in sea [...]

    29. I haven t tried any of these recipes yet but it s due back at the library I want to try Otsu Japanese meaning stylish, witty, romantic and a bunch of other things noodles, the wild rice pancakes and the deconstructed sushi bowl I learned that food with lycopene helps protect against UV radiation I m so fond of her blog and spoiled by the sprawling thoughts and layout, so it s a bit of a compromise to see this intrepid Californian reigned in, but I enjoyed my time with this book.

    30. My Hanukkah present to myself A beautiful book with delicious looking vegetarian recipes Of course, as someone who d like to lose weight, I m always conflicted about the low cal vs whole foods debate is it better for you to use natural sweeteners or splenda Depends on what you mean by better Not sure how many of the recipes I ll make because of the carnivorous predilections of my spouse, but I hope I ll get to try some.
