Bobby Flay Fit: 200 Recipes for a Healthy Lifestyle

Bobby Flay. Clarkson Potter, $32.50 (256p) ISBN 978-0-385-34593-4

TV personality, restaurateur, and author Flay (Bobby Flay’s Barbecue Addiction, etc.) shows readers how to create 200 healthy dishes using many of his signature flavors and methods, proving that healthy food doesn’t have to be bland or boring. Creative riffs on mainstays such as roasted peach and pistachio smoothies, red curry cauliflower soup with cauliflower croutons, spicy black-bean-lime hummus, and mustard-marinated kale salad with caramelized onion and spicy chickpeas give readers plenty of ideas to spice up their dishes. Snacks to stave off between-meal hunger pangs include raspberry-white-peach granola poppers and roasted chickpeas. Flay’s Greek fish tacos with grape-tomato relish and tzatziki cream, pomegranate and chile glazed pork carnitas, and grilled flank steak with cucumber kimchi in lettuce leaves promise to be crowd-pleasers. Even with a dozen cookbooks to his name, Flay still has plenty of flavor-packed, approachable dishes up his sleeve, as proven by this solid assemblage of healthy fare fit for all tastes and skill levels.
