I’ve read my share of healthy comfort food cookbooks and blogs. And to be honest, most of the time “comfort food” just equals low-fat cheese in casseroles and applesauce instead of oil in muffins. The end result sorely lacks in flavor, nutrition, and the all-important comfort factor!
Can’t comfort food be made healthier but still offer a little indulgence? In her new e-book, The Seasonal Comfort Food Cookbook, my friend Sonnet (from In Sonnet’s Kitchen) proves that oh yes it can! As she writes in the introduction, her recipes are ones that every comfort food fan will love and they’ll “love you right back because they’re loaded with vitamins, minerals, good carbohydrates from vegetables, and healthy fats from plant and animal sources.” Sounds like my kind of comfort.
If you think you’ll be missing the dairy, sugar, and processed foods that we so quickly associate with comfort food, let Sonnet prove you wrong with all 55+ mouthwatering recipes. (I’m serious. I was salivating as I scrolled through my copy.)
Sonnet’s photography through the e-book is stunning. I wanted to eat my screen! The Yam Fries with Garlic Aioli? I could eat that entire plate and then some. More recipes that quickly landed on my to-make radar:
- Cream of Leek & Parsnip Soup with Lemon
- Butternut Squash Bake
- Cabbage Casserole with Turkey & Cashew Cheese
- Parsnip & Kale Zuppa Toscana Soup
Do you eat grain-free? No worries. Every recipe in The Seasonal Comfort Food Cookbook is free of grains (and dairy, soy, and refined sugar, too). I feel great eating grain-free, so I really appreciate this. I also love the fact that the recipes incorporate so many amazing seasonal vegetables.
Who said comfort food meant only pizza and garlic bread? (Hint: Try Sonnet’s recipe for Pepperoni Pizza Stir-Fry and a whole new school of thought will be opened up to you.)
