This month, we publish our new cookbook, Amazing Recipe Makeovers: 200 Classic Dishes at 1/2 the Fat, Calories, Salt, or Sugar. Here, a sampling of our genius tricks for lightening some family favorites.
Incredibly Healthy and Addictively Delicious
We sometimes half-joke at the office that every recipe we create is a makeover. After all, you'll probably find a "classic" version somewhere that's way higher in calories, fat, sugar, or sodium. But our job, one we've relished for nearly 30 years, is to deliver all the same pleasures of flavor, texture, and appearance that you expect in the dishes you love and crave—in a lighter context. Thankfully, we have a brilliant team of creative cooks to get us there, folks who love to innovate in the kitchen and who make incredible discoveries every day. Pureed tofu works brilliantly to lighten hollandaise sauce, for example, and canola mayo makes cheese extra gooey so that less seems like more in your grilled cheese. You'll find plenty of these cutting-edge techniques in Amazing Recipe Makovers, available wherever books are sold.
