Fresh, easy and in fashion
One-dish, 10-ingredient baked cod, tasty as it is wholesome
Fresh, easy dinner dishes requiring no more than 10 ingredients are in fashion. A new cookbook from blogger Jodi Moreno of Brooklyn, N.Y., specializes in this type of cuisine. More With Less: Whole Food Cooking Made Irresistibly Simple (Roost/Penguin Random House, $47), is the name of her collection of more than 130 recipes.
Most can be made in 30 minutes or less, like this one-dish baked recipe she recommends for the family or a party. Some have no gluten, dairy products, soy or processed foods. Most are seasonal, use only modest amounts of meat and cheese, and plenty of fresh vegetables, grains, nuts and seeds.
She likes to flavour her food with condiments and vinegars, as followers of her blog, whatscookinggoodlooking.com, well know. Of Italian background, she learned to cook from her family and then went to cooking school before opening her Neighborhood Studio community kitchen. The book is beautifully designed. The photographs, on the dark side, are explanatory.
Lentil Tomato Olive Baked Cod is simple, tasty and takes less than 30 minutes to prepare. It’s an ideal, workday, family meal.
