Start spring-cleaning early with these new cookbooks featuring flavourful, nutritious recipes that are perfect for the warm weather.
These inspiring cookbooks should get you back on track with your January New Year resolutions (yeah, those things), helping you get that spring in your step. From a cookbook dedicated entirely to vegan comfort food to one with healthier takes on classic pasta dishes, there’s something here for every health-minded cook on this list.
Great Tastes: Cooking (and Eating) from Morning to Midnight
Danielle Kosann & Laura Kosann
If you’re familiar with The New Potato, you need to own this cookbook. It offers tons of inspiring, unexpected recipes, many being healthier twists on traditional dishes, like Sweet Pea Carbonara. You know this is a legit cookbook, with all of its A-list appearances in the Kosann sisters’ debut cookbook. Case in point: a foreword by Momofuku Milk Bar founder Christina Tosi.
Vegan Comfort Classics
For some vegan comfort fare, check out Vegan Comfort Classics by Hot for Food blogger Toyota. There’s lots to try, but we highly recommend starting with Toyota’s Hot Buffalo ‘Chicken’ Dip, Mac & ‘Cheese’ Onion Rings, and Cream of Broccoli Soup.
This book coincides with the growing popularity of spiralizers and all those zoodle recipes on Pinterest (got to give the people what they want, right?).
Putting ‘nutrition’ together with ‘pasta’ is actually achievable with Bretherton’s book, with alternative pastas kicking it up a notch – think chickpea cacio e pepe, shirataki noodles, and zucchini cannelloni, plus plenty of options for gluten-free folks.
