 Eat Well The YoChee Way: The Easy and Delicious Way to Cut Fat and Calories with Natural YoChee [Yogurt Cheese]

 

by Nikki & David Goldbeck
                               
Review
YoChee is the Goldbeck's new name for 'laban' or yogurt cheese. Easy to make, just strain the liquid from yogurt. That’s it. The resulting YoChee is an extremely versatile low fat substitute for butter, mayonnaise, sour cream, oil, cream cheese, etc. and an egg extender or substitute. The nutritional benefits and facts are all presented and explained in the introduction. Most of the recipes have 1/3 to 1/2 the fat (many 90% less); 25% to 50% fewer calories; and most recipes have more protein and calcium (some much more).

The book itself is interesting, well written, with nutritional information with all the recipes. I tested several recipes, and to my surprise they were very good to excellent, in both flavor and texture. And I like my fatty foods.

The Pancake & Waffle toppings were excellent, and so was the Curry Cashew Spread. So far so good. But can you actually cook with this YoChee stuff? The Pasta Alfredo was surprisingly rich in flavor and texture, not as good as the real thing, but darn close, and with a heck of a lot less fat.

It is easy to see why the Goldbeck's say the One Step Vegetable Lasagna is one of their most popular dishes. Using oven roasted vegetables produced an excellent vegetable lasagna.

Forget the new foods with high-tech fat substitutes. If you need to watch your fat, cholesterol and calories, buy this book and eat healthier without missing the fat. YoChee is easy (actually effortless) to make, and has more uses than you can shake a calorie at. I intend to try many more of the recipes, and experiment with using YoChee in some of my own recipes.
Bottom Line: Buy this book.
