If, like me, you troll the farmers market for new arrivals every week, throw this book in your basket. I've made two recipes so far — Asparagus with Brown Butter and Pine Nuts, and Potatoes with Creamy Lemon Dressing — and both have achieved summer standby status. An amazing resource for veggie inspiration.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This new bible for all things vegetable from Fine Cooking's Vegetable Queen is ideal for the millions of eaters who want to get the recommended five to nine servings of fruits and greens into their daily diet. Susie Middleton shares her love of healthful, delicious veggies with a guide to shopping for and cooking delectable meatless meals, including such delights as Spinach with Shallots and Parmigiano and Roasted Eggplant, Bell Pepper, and Fresh Basil Salad.

More than 100 recipes for appetizers, snacks, entrees, and side dishes, many of them vegan, make Fast, Fresh & Green an excellent resource for vegetarians and omnivores.

Review:

"Not all these recipes are fast, nor do they all feature green veggies (nor are they consciously ecofocused). The subtitle explains it better: this rainbow of appealing recipes is for those who adore vegetable dishes and want more than an afterthought chapter dedicated to them. Middleton, a former editor-at-large for Fine Cooking magazine, divides recipes by cooking style, instructing readers in braising, hands-on sauting, stir-frying, grilling, and more. She offers dishes — braised fingerlings with rosemary and mellow garlic; sauted carrots with warm olive and mint dressing; stir-fried swiss chard with pine nuts and balsamic butter; and grill-roasted bell peppers with goat cheese and cherry tomato dressing — with layers of complexity that heighten but don't overwhelm the flavors of the intended stars, the vegetables. And she employs interesting contrasts — savory and sweet, for example — in recipes such as vanilla and cardamom glazed acorn squash rings; roasted turnips and pears with rosemary-honey drizzle; and gingery sweet potato and apple saute with toasted almonds that are likely to tempt even the vegetable-averse. Fink's photos — mostly of green veggies, perhaps in a nod to the misnomer title — show lima beans and peas as mouth-watering, decadent treats. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

I love this veggie cookbook! I've tried about a dozen recipes so far and only one of them was one that I wouldn't make again. I have no qualms about altering ingredients, either, so the Roasted Turnips and Pears with Rosemary Honey Drizzle now has rutabagas instead of turnips; I've taught many people the joys of rutabagas with this recipe! Kale with Maple, Ginger, and Bacon is crave worthy. Corn Sauté with Chile and Lime is a perfect summer food and the Quick Roasted Cauliflower with Zesty Orange-Olive Dressing makes a bland winter meal feel delightful. My absolute favorite recipe is the Summer Vegetable and Tomato Tian, which is reason alone to buy this book. In sum, if you spend way too much time ogling veggies at the farmers market and wondering what to do with all of that lovely produce, then this book is clearly meant for you! Btw, I am now buying my fifth gift copy of this book to give to yet another vegetable lover who is short on tasty recipes -- it is truly vegetable bliss!
