Product description

HEIDI SWANSON'S approach to cooking whole, natural foods has earned her a global readership. From her Northern California kitchen, she introduced us to a less-processed world of cooking and eating through her award-winning blog, 101 Cookbooks, and in her James Beard Award-nominated cookbook, "Super Natural Cooking," she taught us how to expand our pantries and integrate nutrient-rich superfoods into our diets. In "Super Natural Every Day," Heidi helps us make nutritionally packed meals part of our daily repertoire by sharing a sumptuous collection of nearly 100 of her go-to recipes. These are the dishes that Heidi returns to again and again because they're approachable, good for the body, and just plain delicious. This stylish cookbook is equal parts inspiration and instruction, showing us how to create a welcoming table filled with nourishing food for friends and family. The seductively flavorful vegetarian recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, treats, and drinks are quick to the table but tasty enough to linger over. Grab a Millet Muffin or some flaky Yogurt Biscuits for breakfast on the go, or settle into a lazy Sunday morning with a stack of Multi-grain Pancakes and a steaming cup of Ginger Tea. A bowl of Summer Squash Soup or a couple of Chanterelle Tacos make for a light and healthy lunch, and for dinner, there's Black Sesame Otsu, Pomegranate-Glazed Eggplant with Tempeh, or the aptly named Weeknight Curry. Heidi's Rose Geranium Prosecco is the perfect start to a celebratory meal, and the Buttermilk Cake with fresh plums or Sweet Panzanella will satisfy even the most stubborn sweet tooth. Gorgeously illustrated with over 100 photos that showcase the engaging rhythms of Heidi's culinary life and travels, "Super Natural Every Day" reveals the beauty of uncomplicated food prepared well and reflects a realistic yet gourmet approach to a healthy and sophisticated natural foods lifestyle.

I am in australia, and am an avid recipe book owner, I had never heard of heidi before, but for christmas my good friend bought this book for me and i absolutely LOVE IT! the recipes are whole foods, but not fiddly, and delicious, and i loved reading the first part about her ethos etc, (which i normally skip and go straight to the recipes)..
its very inspiring and im slowly changing ingredients in my pantry and fridge to be as wholesome as possible for my family!
Ive just ordered her other book, super natural cooking, cant wait to see how it is!
and this book place is soooo affordable!

Like the author of this book, Heidi Swanson, I, too, have about 101 cookbooks. This is my favourite. It is chock full of simple, inspiring, delicious and original recipes. The photography and writing make you want to return to this book again and again and the results make it worth it every time.

I had been looking for a cook book that centred on natural foods and healthy living but which was still a real "foodie" cook book. This is it. I love reading it and I love cooking from it. My family are pleased to be eating from it. I still can't believe how inexpensive it was.

Review quote

"Every Day Maybe, But Hardly Everyday...an unexpected winner in the weeknight-warrior category."--NPR, 6/5/11 "Lovers of whole grains, local produce and farm fresh eggs, listen up. (Here's looking at you, Northern California.) San Franciscan Heidi Swanson - of the acclaimed blog 101 Cookbooks and 2007 James Beard Award-nominated "Super Natural Cooking" - has brought us "Super Natural Every Day: Well-Loved Recipes From My Natural Foods Kitchen," a paean to natural foods."--San Francisco Chronicle, 5/22/11 "It's an inspiring book, and one that I'm cooking out of quite a bit. If you love grains, noodles, and fresh vegetables, as well as Heidi's famous and lovely blog, do check this out. You won't regret it."--TheKitchn.com, 5/17/11 "When it comes to our modern approach to eating right, there's no better way to discover how delicious "dieting" can be." --BA Daily, Bonappetit.com, 5/11/11 "Whether you're a vegetarian, a "Meatless Monday" convert or just trying to eat more healthy, wholesome foods, Heidi's recipes will be valuable additions to your every day meals."--Devour The Blog, Cooking Channel, 4/5/11 "The author of "Super Natural Cooking" and the blog 101 Cookbooks, Swanson offers a glimpse into her favorite everyday recipes. A huge and often preachy proponent of the buy organic/local/seasonal movement, she focuses on whole, natural foods including whole grains, whole grain flours, and fresh produce--ingredients that are seasonal and minimally processed. Recipes run the gamut from breakfast through desserts and include healthier variations of familiar favorites including crepes made with rye flour and ginger cookies with dried apricots and shaved chocolate. Lunch offerings include unique and palatable dishes such as kale salad with toasted coconut and sesame oil, and chanterelle tacos. Dinner recipes such as chickpea stew made with saffron, black pepper tempeh and weeknight curry made with tofu are big on flavor. Swanson spends several pages detailing her pantry staples including oils and fats, grains, and flours to guide those unfamiliar with key ingredients. For those looking to incorporate more healthful ingredients into their diet, Swanson offers a welcome variety of appetizing recipes that are easy enough to prepare on busy weeknights and sure to appeal. (Apr.)"--Publishers Weekly, 4/4/11 "It is easy on the eyes, a good read and full of recipes that had me itching to cook. It is rare that a book can do all three things, but when it does- you know it is a keeper."--Lottie + Doof, 4/1/11 "Swanson is the Deborah Madison for the digital age. Her cooking is earthy but approachable - she made grains fashionable again - and she swaths it all in stylish photos shot in the natural, grey light of her hometown San Francisco."--Say100, Food with Amanda Hesser, 2/23/11 "Expect plenty of interest in Super Natural Every Day, Heidi Swanson's follow-up to Super Natural Cooking. The book features more thoughtful, interesting meatless recipes along the lines of the ones that have made Swanson's blog, 101cookbooks.com, so popular."--Publishers Weekly, Spring 2011 Announcements: Top 10 Cookbooks, 1/24/11 "This looks like fabulous companion to Swanson's earlier "Super Natural Cooking "with new riffs on old faves, and plenty of fresh ideas, too."--Publishers Weekly, 10 Cookbooks to Watch in 2011, 1/10/11 "It's like this love child of Martha Stewart and Plenty. Brilliant, really!"--Deborah Madison "Heidi Swanson is one of the most original voices in cookery today. No other writer combines luscious, fresh, wholesome, and completely enticing food so well. Honeyed manouri, quinoa patties, membrillo cake--I want to cook everything!" --Yotam Ottolenghi, author of "Plenty"" ""To open "Super Natural Every Day" is to want to read it through and then cook like mad. Heidi's food is simple, warm, and nourishing, the kind of food you want every day." --Dorie Greenspan, author of "Around My French Table" "Heidi's food is nourishing and soulful. What makes her food so appealing is her ability to create flavorful, healthy, and satisfying recipes. Heidi makes food that I want to eat." --Kim Boyce, author of "Good to the Grain" "Heidi Swanson's newest book is bewitching, clever, and outstanding in every way. It is far more than a gathering of tasty, health-oriented recipes. Every page is bursting with fresh ideas, new kitchen concepts, and inspired ingredient pairings. I know I'll be turning to it again and again." --Melissa Clark, "New York Times" food columnist and author of "In the Kitchen with a Good Appetite"
