I interrupt today’s regularly scheduled Single Serving Sunday post with a celebration of the release of Nicole Morrissey’s cookbook, Prevention RD’s Everyday Healthy Cooking (Skyhorse Publishing). Complete with a giveaway of the cookbook to one lucky reader!
Nicole Morrissey is the blogger behind Prevention RD and is a registered dietician offering smart, sustainable solutions to healthy weight loss since she started her blog in 2009. She firmly believes that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” and this motto is evident in her recipes. From healthier versions of mozzarella sticks and chicken tortilla soup, to creative recipes such as creamy chicken pesto enchiladas and carrot cake pancakes you’ll be satisfied while also being proactive about your health. There are even chapters dedicated to carb and dessert lovers
Surprisingly, the first recipe I tried was a side dish. I rarely make side dishes when I cook for myself, which is most of the time, but the roasted asparagus with balsamic tomatoes was a must-try. It was perfect served alongside a chicken breast topped with a Greek yogurt sauce (which I will share at a later time).
Being a carb lover, I also tried out the roasted red pepper and goat cheese pasta. I remember when she first posted this recipe on her blog and I immediately saved it. Unfortunately I save a lot of recipes on a daily basis and like most it was forgotten. Thankfully I rediscovered it in her cookbook. I love recipes that use few ingredients but pack a lot of flavor so this dish was perfect for me. The only thing I changed was pureeing two cloves of garlic into the sauce because I just love garlic.
Of course there are many more recipes that have been bookmarked throughout her book, but the priority goes to her crock port chicken tortilla soup. The only thing I miss in this cookbook is a recipe index in the back. But the introductions to each chapter do indicate the page numbers for each recipe.
