In this exciting, one-of-a-kind cookbook, radio and TV personality Angie Martinez and acclaimed chef Angelo Sosa join together to offer you over 100 innovative and delicious recipes that blend the art of Latin cooking with healthy eating. Based on the sexy, spicy, and satisfying foods they cherish from their Cuban, Dominican, and Puerto Rican backgrounds, Angie and Angelo remix classic recipes like ropa viejo and arroz con pollo so everyone can enjoy eating the food they've grown up with, but without the guilt. As Angie writes in her introduction, this is not a diet book Instead she is thrilled to share her personal passion about clean and healthy living with the Latin community. Despite its bold flavors and fresh ingredients, Latin cuisine has never exactly been known as "light." Once Angie and Angelo combined forces, they knew they could share a balance of the old and the new in dishes like Shrimp and Papaya Ceviche and Silken Soymilk Flan, or beverages such as the No-Guilt Mojito, alongside deep-rooted family recipes like Angie's grandmother's Crispy Tostones and Angelo's tia Carmen's Dominican Fish Stew. There's something for everyone in this beautifully photographed cookbook, whether you're vegetarian, vegan, gluten free or an omnivore looking for lighter fare. In the first chapter, Angelo's Healthy Kitchen, you'll read about smart ingredient substitutions, alternative cooking methods, and subtle reductions in sugar, fat and sodium that create healthier food without compromising the integrity of Latin cuisine's celebrated, iconic tastes. These simple yet flavorful recipes are for any level of experienced cook, with helpful notes ranging from kitchen prep tips to nutritional advice to ingredient tidbits. With its blend of innovative and traditional recipes, emphasis on health-conscious eating, and fun stories from two accomplished and influential members of the Latin American community, this vibrant volume is a welcome addition to anyone who enjoys Latin flavors.

Library Journal Review

Lighter versions of classic Latin foods-for instance, flan made from soy and almond milks and corn dumplings that are poached rather than deep fried-fill this collaboration from radio personality Martinez and Top Chef alumnus Angelo Sosa (Flavor Exposed). The authors, aided by registered dietician Shirley Fan (The Flying Brownie), show readers how to use healthy substitutions-brown rice for white, for example-to boost the nutritional value of meals without sacrificing taste. Expect plenty of whole grains, legumes, lean proteins, and fresh produce in these recipes, along with trendy ingredients such as coconut water and agave nectar. VERDICT Like Ingrid Hoffmann's Latin d'Lite, this cookbook blends traditional and contemporary recipes and advocates small lifestyle changes instead of drastic diets. Martinez and Sosa's recipes are invigorating and simple, with some surprise gourmet twists. (c) Copyright 2015. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
