Wild about Greens: 125 Delectable Vegan Recipes for Kale, Collards, Arugula, BOK Choy, and Other Leafy Veggies Everyone Lovesby Nava Atlas
Synopses & Reviews
Celebrated vegan and vegetarian cookbook author Nava Atlas serves up a comprehensive collection of scrumptious recipes, all featuring ultra-healthy, super-nutritious leafy greens.
Kale, collards, spinach, Asian greens, and many more leafy greens are a breeze to grow and prepare--and these 125 recipes showcase the most commonly used varieties in a wide selection of flavorful dishes. Nava's up-to-the-minute ideas range from using sturdy collard greens as wrappers for savory fillings to making luscious dips from arugula and watercress. There's even a section on green juices and smoothies that make it easier than ever to incorporate the most nutritious foods on earth into delicious everyday fare that everyone can enjoy.
"Atlas (Vegan Express) successfully elevates leafy greens beyond the salad bowl with this collection of recipes that will appeal to vegans and meat-eaters alike. Though she excludes cabbages and common lettuces, Atlas introduces a host of other dynamic greens-from the 'bold' arugula, to the now ubiquitous kale, to the 'peppery' watercress-and includes plenty of tips for buying and preparation. In addition to a host of recipes for salads, soups, and dips, Atlas shows how to incorporate a healthy portion of greens into 'heartier dishes,' as in quinoa with chard and chickpeas, a bean and escarole pasta, and a roasted eggplant curry. She also invites adventurous vegans to try their hand at green juices and smoothies, which utilize a broad range of ingredients, including apples, collards, chocolate (nondairy) milk, and spinach. Though each of the recipes stands alone, meat-eaters could happily pair their favorite protein with many of these dishes. Clear and simple instructions, combined with Atlas's conversational tone, make this guide to greens a valuable addition to any cook's bookshelf. Illus. & photos. "
