The Complete Leafy Greens
Everyone is looking to incorporate more leafy greens into their diets, from the common to the somewhat obscure.
This incredibly interesting and comprehensive book is a reflection of the groundswell of enthusiasm there is out there for healthy eating — leafy greens in particular. Kale led the charge and now consumers are looking for new varieties of these inexpensive, nutritious and versatile ingredients.
Dozens of varieties of leafy greens (67 to be exact) are featured, each with a photograph for easy identification — from popular choices like spinach to trendy options like kale and collards to the obscure mizuna or purslane, which may only be familiar to foragers, avid gardeners or world travelers. But the world is getting smaller every day and our grocery store selection larger, so it’s probably just a matter of time before you see these at your local grocers.
Susan has created 250 outstanding vegetarian recipes — a wide and wonderful variety that can be enjoyed as main dishes, sides and even breakfast! So stretch beyond your typical cooking routine and tap into a healthier, more interesting way of eating by simply incorporating more greens into your kitchen.
