America's Test Kitchen Light & Healthy 2010 Special Issue
America's Test Kitchen proves that you don't have to sacrifice flavor when you're looking to cook lighter and healthier meals. Most low-fat recipes offer tiny portions, require fussy techniques, or turn to ingredient substitutions that lower calories and fat, but often times sacrifice flavor in the process. Who wants to eat a meal that tastes like diet food?
Light & Healthy 2010, a 64-page double issue, features a variety of recipes (more than 65), from soups, salads and entrees to side dishes, baked goods and desserts, all of which maximize flavor to give you healthy recipes you'll actually want to eat. Each recipe also includes nutritional information, including calories, fat, fiber, and sodium per serving. Also includes up-to-date equipment ratings and ingredient tastings that help make these recipes taste great.
Featured recipes include:Creamy lasagna that tastes as rich as it looks
Full-fat spinach lasagna is usually heavy and bland, and lightened versions are often dry, come in tiny portions, and tastes like anything but real lasagna. Our makeover brings this comfort classic into balance, replacing the fat-laden bechamel sauce with an unbelievably rich, creamy, and butter-free sauce
A Philly Cheesesteak sub that won't sink you with unwanted fat and calories.
For our lower-fat Philly Cheesesteak, we switched to a leaner cut of meat and used less cheese, but no one would know, as you're still serving a sub with ultra-thin slices of grilled steak and plenty of gooey cheese in every bite.
Light Cheesecake that tastes like the real deal.
Even though our light cheesecake lighter is significantly lighter in fat and calories, it still has the trademark creamy texture and tang of its full-fat cousins. And we even figured out how to add a seriously rich, chocolatey swirl without adding a serious amount of calories.
Additional recipes include:
Vegetarian Chili, Cold Soba Noodle Salad with Chicken and Vegetables, Chicken Soft Tacos, Smoked Pork Loin, Philly Cheesesteaks, Stir-Fried Beef and Broccoli in Garlic Sauce, Oven-Fried Fish, Spaghetti and Meatballs, Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps, Vegetable Tart, Scalloped Potatoes, Buttermilk Biscuits, Marble Cheesecake, and Fudgy Brownies, Chocolate Bundt Cake, Maple-Glazed Pork Tenderloin, Grilled Turkey Burgers, Spaghetti Carbonara, and many more!
