In Nutritious Delicious, America’s Test Kitchen digs deeper into using nature’s powerhouse ingredients to update the nutritional framework of our favorite dishes, rigorously testing with an eye to getting great flavor while minimizing reliance on butter, refined flour, and sugar. The resulting collection of recipes—such as Blueberry-Oatmeal Pancakes, MLT (Mushroom, Lettuce, and Tomato) Sandwiches, Salmon Tacos with Super Slaw, and Butternut Squash Polenta—represents a new way to think about ingredients that everyone can relate to.
