I’ve been meaning to share my friend and colleague, Paula Shoyer’s latest book with
you! Her fourth and latest cookbook: The Healthy JewishKitchen: Fresh Contemporary Recipes for Every Occasion takes Jewish every day and holiday cooking to a whole new
level. Paula’s recipes put a contemporary spin on old favorites without the usual unhealthy cast of characters. Her recipes utilize fresh, natural and seasonal ingredients, with many that are gluten-free and vegan.
I’ve tried a bunch of recipes Tuscan Farro Soup, Moroccan Lentil Soup, Dry Rubbed Roasted Salmon, and Roasted Broccoli with Mustard and Zaatar Drizzle. Here’s what I love, the recipes are delicious and use fantastic herbs, spices, and seasonings to do flavoring, not adding heaviness or chemicals. Lemon, Dijon mustard, zaatar, fresh herbs, coconut oil and many combinations that great new tecnniques (see her Chocolate Quinoa Cake below). Paula Shoyer is no newcomer to getting healthier, even
her awesome dessert books, The Kosher Baker and The Holiday Kosher Baker shied away from margarine and processed
ingredients years before that was a known thing. Also, as a seasoned cookbook author, Paula Shoyer, knows that readers want easy recipes, with pantry staple ingredients, that yield terrific results. This book fits the bill.
Thank you Paula for sharing these two recipes below with GKC readers. Plus don’t forget to make her sensational ChocolateQuinoa Cake, perfect for Passover or anytime of year (gluten-free too) featured on Food52.com.
