Publisher's Weekly Review

The Defined Dish blogger Snodgrass debuts with this collection of dozens of gluten-free, dairy-free, and grain-free recipes that are packed with flavor. She organizes the recipes by region--in the "Mom-Bo Italiano" chapter are modified Italian-American classics such as chicken saltimbocca roll-ups and rosemary-lemon shrimp. The "Better Than Take Out" chapter has plenty of Asian-inspired dishes, such as red curry shrimp and sweet potato noodle stir-fry, black pepper chicken, and Mongolian beef stir-fry. A Texas native, Snodgrass includes appetizing examples of Southern and Tex-Mex cooking in the "Southern Charms" and "Tacos y Mas" chapters, most notably Cajun crab cakes with remoulade, cauliflower rice jambalaya, street tacos made with steak, and crispy carnitas. Helpful notes at the top of each recipe inform whether the dish is entirely Whole30 compliant, and Snodgrass adds tips for modifying other dishes ("omit the sugar and add 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar," she writes for her creamy tomato basil soup). Readers looking for healthy dishes that do not sacrifice flavor will find plenty to enjoy in this outing. (Dec.)
