The Chile Pepper Bible
From Sweet to Fiery & Everything in Between
Paperback ISBN: 0778805506
Contrary to popular belief, a pepper does not need to make your eyes water or start a fire in your mouth to qualify as a chile. Chile is simply the common name for the fruit of the capsicum plant. Chiles come in a wide variety of colors, shapes and flavors. This comprehensive book (which serves as both a reference and a cookbook) from bestselling author and expert researcher Judith Finlayson takes you through the many varieties of chiles and provides absorbing information on everything from the historical and geographic origins of chiles, information on The Scoville Scale (it measures the hotness of a chile and was invented by Wilbur Scoville), health benefits and finally, 250 delicious and inventive recipes. From fiery Tex-Mex inspired meals to savory and sweet Thai, this collection of recipes are sure to make you a lover of all things chile! Here's just a tempting sample of the dishes that await you: - Appetizers like Cheese Arepas, Fresh Cucumber Kimchi, Guacamole, Indian-Style Roti are the perfect jumping off point for any dinner and sumptuous soups like Mulligatawny, Thai Coconut Chicken and Pepper Black Bean Soup bring warmth and comfort on a cold winter's day. Chiles add their wonderful and distinctive flavor to fish and seafood and this is highlighted beautifully in Jamaican-Style Fish Cakes, Paella, Shrimp Creole, Bahia-Style Chowder. And Judith's beef and veal recipes marry beautifully with chiles -- resulting in delectable Mexican Meatballs, Chinese Beef with Orange, Beef Fajitas and Ropa Vieja. There are also recipes for sides, fresh salsas, sambals and chutneys, not to mention sauces, marinades, dressings and condiments.

The Complete Leafy Greens Cookbook
67 Leafy Greens & 250 Recipes
Paperback ISBN: 0778804577
From the common to the somewhat obscure -- everyone is looking to incorporate more leafy greens into their diets. This 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 alternatives to these inexpensive, nutritious and versatile ingredients. Dozens of varieties of leafy green (67 to be exact) are featured, each with a photograph for easy identification -- from popular ones like spinach, to the trendy such as kale and collards, to the obscure like 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. All the greens are listed alphabetically, and each listing contains: - Scientific and alternate names, and types - Historical information including fascinating folk remedies - Nutritional information as well as tasting notes - Recipes that correspond to the particular green - How to buy, store, prepare and cook the green - Measures & substitutions, equivalents - Intriguing and entertaining sidebar boxes. Susan has created 250 outstanding vegan recipes -- a wide and wonderful variety which can be enjoyed as main dishes, sides and even breakfast. Smoothies are the perfect way to incorporate more greens into your diet. The humble Brussels sprout is elevated to a whole new level in Brussels and Yukon Hash, dandelion is dandy in Penne Boscaiola and Napa simply shines in Grilled Kimcheese Sandwiches. Explore greens from other parts of the world that are now grown in North America -- Yu Choy in Yu Choy with Saucy Shiitakes and Baby Corn, or taro leaves that perfectly complete the recipe for West Indies Pepper Pot Soup. 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.

My weight is under control, I like the way I look, I enjoy eating more, and I feel great." The Complete Vegan Kitchen is "one of the best vegan cookbooks I have read," said famousveggie.com. For the person just beginning to chose meatless meals, it provides information on choosing a vegan diet, nutritional information, and recipes with familiar foods and techniques.
