Talking Any cookbooks that don't use S & P?

Hi! I've posted this on another forum, but I was curious to see if anyone knows of any cookbooks that don't use salt & pepper?

Never heard of a cookbook like that!! Couldn't you just use regular recipes and sub, I don't know, maybe Mrs Dash for the S&P?

How about getting on Google and doing a search - that's what I just did. Google is your friend I only found salt-free cookbooks though.

You can use any cookbook and just leave them out.

Here's a good one I have for no salt, but no pepper? I guess like jennyema said, just leave it out, but why? Here it is, The No-Salt Lowest-Sodium Colokbook by Donald A Gazzaniga. I't good. Hope this helps.

Actually we generally just gravitate to less salt. But there are zillions of books for cooking with reduced salt.

I can only suppose the pepper thing is a preference - know of no health reason for avoiding it.

And I always go heavy on black pepper.

But sure just avoid it, or try to come up with another spice that will go well with the dish.

As Jenny said, use any cookbook, but just omit the salt and pepper.
