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.

The Quintessential Kale Cookbook: Simple and Delicious Recipes for Everyone's Favorite Superfood
The Quintessential Kale Cookbook
Simple and Delicious Recipes for Everyone's Favorite Superfood
Hardcover      ISBN: 1629141895

Kale is considered one of the world's most powerful superfoods for very good reasons. It's packed with antioxidants, which help neutralize free radicals in the body, which, in turn, helps to prevent many kinds of cancer. Just one cup provides more than 100 percent of the daily value of vitamins A, C, and K, and it's low calorie, high in fiber, and fat-free. Furthermore, kale is high in iron and has a good dose of omega-3 fatty acids, which work as an anti-inflammatory and help fight arthritis, asthma, and autoimmune disorders. And to top all that off, author Julia Mueller proves that it can be delicious.
With seventy-five recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack time, and even dessert, your whole family will quickly fall in love with kale. Here's a sampling of the recipes included:

- Blackened salmon with garlicy Cajun kale
- Butternut squash and kale chili
- Cauliflower and kale yellow curry
- Grilled kale, peach, and corn salad with basil honey balsamic vinaigrette
- Indian chickpea stew with kale
- Roasted beet, walnut, and kale pesto
- Sausage, fennel, and kale soup
- Saut ed shrimp and kale tacos with pineapple, corn, and kale salsa
- Savory cheesy kale pancakes
- Shrimp, artichoke heart, sun-dried tomato pesto pizza
