Presenting Today’s Kidney Diet Street Food Favorites Cookbook
Explore your favorite street foods and get tips on making kidney-friendly choices with the new Today’s Kidney Diet Street Food Favorites cookbook. We’ve modified 14 street foods to fit a kidney-friendly diet by reducing sodium, potassium and phosphorus. Try well-known street food favorites like Belgian Waffles and Shish Kebabs or go international with Arepas (Grilled Corn Cakes with Cheese), Turon (Filipino Banana Rolls) or Elote (Mexican Street Corn). This recipe collection is full of flavor with a variety of seasonings. Plus, these hand held dishes are fun to share with friends and family.
Some of the things our cookbook crew discovered during recipe development includes how easy it is to make falafel—and how many ways to eat them. We also learned how to fold egg roll sheets for the Filipino Banana Rolls. No worries–each roll contain only 1/3 piece of a banana to keep potassium low. Also, we learned about hard cheeses used in Colombia and Mexico, and how a small amount can pack lots of flavor.
During our photo shoot we had fun creating a street food look for the Falafel recipe. We were thrilled with the grill marks on the Mexican Street Corn and Jamaican Jerk Chicken. But the best part was sampling the street food recipe leftovers after our photographer picked the best selections to shoot.
