Following the runaway success of bestsellers The Zone, Sugar Busters, and Protein Power comes Dr. Deborah Friedson Chud's The Gourmet Prescription. The first "insulin-conscious" cookbook to develop sophisticated lower carbohydrate dishes with culinary appeal foremost in mind, this amply photographed book features such enticing recipes as Grilled Shrimp with Red Pepper-Caper Sauce; Chickpea, Fennel, and Red Pepper Salad; and Fresh Figs with Virtual Mascarpone. Chud marries her unique kitchen techniques, original "high-flavor, low-glycemic" condiments, and savory recipes from a variety of international cuisines to achieve a perfect blend of gourmet eating and good health. This ground-breaking contemporary cuisine provides a life-sustaining way of eating for today's tastes and lifestyles.
Have you tried the lower-carbohydrate, "insulin-conscious" diets and been bored by the menus and recipes you've found? So was Dr. Deborah Friedson Chud, who decided to remedy the situation by writing her own recipe book. The book is organized into protein dishes and carbohydrate dishes. Protein dishes include a variety of innovative fish and shellfish recipes, such as Crab Bundles with Avocado-Ginger Sauce, Clams in Black Bean Sauce, and Smoked Shrimp "Fajitas" (wrapped in lettuce leaves instead of tortillas). Poultry dishes include Chicken Kebobs with Spicy Lime Sauce, Chinese Brined and Grilled Ducks, and Smoked Turkey Tenderloins with Raspberry-Chipotle Sauce. Meat dishes include Pork Tenderloin with Plum Sauce (made from scratch with oranges and plums), Porcini-Laced Veal Roast, and even five recipes for ostrich. If you're a meat lover, you'll salivate at the artful photographs. The carbohydrate recipes emphasize high-fiber vegetables, legumes, and fruits--no sucrose, potatoes, flour, or grains. A chapter titled "Condiments and Flavor Enhancers" includes recipes for a number of flavorful smoked and roasted vegetables. Each recipe includes a nutritional analysis.From the Inside Flap:
