Simply Julia : 110 Easy Recipes for Healthy Comfort Food
by Turshen, Julia

A New York Times best-selling cookbook author offers 110 foolproof recipes for healthier, but still satisfying, comfort foods including Stewed Chicken with Sour Cream + Chive Dumplings, Hasselback Carrots with Smoked Paprika and Lemon Ricotta Cupcakes. 100,000 first printing. Illustrations.

New Yorker Turshen (Small Victories, 2016) has been cooking as private chef and in community settings, and she's learned a lot that she's eager to share with readers. Many dishes that hungry people turn to for comfort can be nutritionally unwise, and she wants to remedy that. Turshen is an intuitive cook, sharing ways to use all sorts of ingredients as well as leftovers and other oddments that might pile up in the refrigerator. She leans toward vegetarian cooking, but by no means eschews meat in her recipes. Some of her inspirations come from Jewish relatives, but she repurposes them, offering gefilte-fish bites, or latkes made with sweet and nutty parsnips instead of potatoes. Brussels sprouts roast with hot sauce and Gorgonzola for vegetarian "Buffalo wings." Seven-item lists cover what she learned as a private chef, uses for leftover buttermilk, advice for organizing one's kitchen, and even ways to get conversations started at the table. Cooks needing inspiration more than exacting recipes will find a lot of use for Turshen's creative ideas. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
