In my opinion, Mollie Katzen created one of the best healthy cookbooks. As a result of her book, a Moosewood restaurant opened in Ithaca, New York. My boss as a research assistant was obsessed with this restaurant and the abundant number of vegetarian recipes. Curious, I decided to make one. The recipe I prepared was the cucumber yogurt chilled soup. Slight modifications were made in the process.
