Recently I've bought a "new" cookbook. Actually it's not exactly new, because it is a thrift store find and was published back in 2002. I'm talking about The Mayo Clinic Williams - Sonoma Cookbook: Simple Solutions. For Eating Well. The book is a winner of The Julia Child Cookbook Award and so far I'm in love with it!
The recipes are simple, well balanced, delicious ( for what I've tried), plus next to every recipe there is a nutrition analyses which makes it easy to see what exactly you take from the food. I forgot to mention the price I paid for the book - $ 3.75 and it is a large book, full color photographs, glossy wipe-able pages. So, expect to see more and more recipes from the book posted here in my blog.
I chose to start with something easy - Garlic and bean puree. It goes very well on crackers, tortilla chips or just plain, eaten with the fork.
Here comes the recipe. Easy right?
