Easy-to-fix and low-fat

Polenta with chicken, and black bean tortilla bake are just a few of the low-fat easy-to-fix meals in a new edition of "Skinny One-Pot Meals" (Surrey Books, 1997, $12.95) by Columbia-based cookbook author Ruth Glick. Glick has added new recipes with popular Asian and Southwestern flavors, and all recipes have less than 30 percent calories from fat.
