Healthy eating. Everyone talks about it. Everyone wants to do it, Everyone knows one should do it. Why is it so difficult?
Guess what? It isn't. It's easy. Use fresh, healthy ingredients and quit making recipes that serve six when you are only feeding two. Kate decided when she started offering weekly menu plans on Thyme for Cooking, that multiplying is easier than dividing. The recipes are for two servings. They're easily doubled for four or tripled for six or halved for one.
She always knew that cooking is easy, fun and even relaxing. One should be able to prepare dinner, talk to family and have a glass of wine, all at the same time. There are no long lists of ingredients or complex instructions in Healthy Small Plates. Kate likes fresh ingredients and simple recipes with the complex flavors found in the cuisines from around the Mediterranean.
The Soups and Salads in Volume 1 of Healthy Small Plates are flexible. Add a baguette for a quick, lunch, combine two for an easy mid-week or lazy Sunday supper or serve one alone as an impressive (but easy) first course for that dinner with your future (prospective) in-laws. There are suggestions with every recipe.
Is every recipe healthy? Mostly... When the plates are small one can add decadent bits and still enjoy without guilt. Have some fun...
