Low-fat cooking and grilling two American passions, are combined in this book of more than one hundred recipes, with tempting results. The grill is the perfect tool for cooking delicious and easy low-fat meals. Grilling brings out the natural flavors of foods, making the use of heavy sauces and time-consuming preparations unnecessary. In Low-Fat Grilling Melanie Barnard offers grilling recipes, for all occasions, that are tasty and low in fat. Scrumptious appetizers include Tomato and Basil Pizza and Honey Mustard Sweet Potato Thins; entrées such as Tandoor-Style Chicken, Grill-Smoked Turkey with Curried Peach Salsa, Salmon with Dilled Cucumber Yogurt Sauce, and Steak and Charred Onion Sandwich; and vegetables like Carrots with Ginger and Honey Glaze, Grilled Corn Chowder, and Plantain Slices. Barnard cleverly includes recipes for pasta, soup, and sandwiches, as well as for other improbable candidates for grilling, like polenta, potato chips, and apples. Side dishes, accompaniments, and desserts that complement grilled foods will also provide satisfaction without the fat: marinades and salsas, coleslaw, baked beans, and strawberry shortcake. In addition to the recipes themselves, Barnard provides suggested menus for entertaining, ideas of getting the most from your grill, helpful nutritional analyses, and general hints on how to cut back on fat without compromising taste. Easy and delicious, Melanie Barnard's grilled foods belong on the dieter's table as much as on everyone's picnic bench.
