The Super Natural Kitchen
You won’t find ghosts, ghoulies, or anything supernatural in Heidi Swanson’s Super Natural Cooking and Super Natural Every Day, but you will find delicious recipes made with all natural, whole ingredients. San Francisco-based Heidi Swanson is well known to foodies in the blogosphere for her site 101 Cookbooks, where she posts recipes for food simple in nature but complex in flavor. It doesn’t seem to matter what vegetables, grains, or dairy she uses, she knows how to put things together to bring out the best in every ingredient. I’ve been a fan of her blog for ages, so I was very happy to find that KPL has copies of both of her cookbooks. My favorite recipes are for Straw and Hay Fettuccini Tangle, a pasta dish that uses asparagus and spinach to create a really tasty nontraditional pesto, and Double Broccoli Quinoa, a recipe that might convert even the strictest of broccoli haters. If you’re looking to incorporate more whole foods into your cooking, Super Natural Cooking and Super Natural Every Dayis a great place to start.
