Review quote

"I love everything about this book: the concept, narrative, context, voice, look, and feel. Then there are the recipes--so inviting, I just want to start at the beginning and cook my way through the entire batch. And as if we need a bonus, Joe's personal warmth and intelligence shine through all of this like a big embrace." --Mollie Katzen, author of The Moosewood Cookbook and The Heart of the Plate "Joe Yonan is a kindred spirit; he too is a meat lover who's embarked on a vegetable-forward adventure and made more room for plants on the plate. But he's done much more in Eat Your Vegetables Joe invites us along for a delicious ride that includes the highs and lows of edible gardening and the joy of cooking for one (with smart, practical tips for managing leftovers and minimizing food waste), wrapped in an impassioned plea to get off the couch and--yes!--into the kitchen." --Kim O'Donnel, author of The Meat Lover's Meatless Celebrations and The Meat Lover's Meatless Cookbook "It's hard to write inspired recipes that are simple, but that's just what Joe Yonan has done in Eat Your Vegetables. In addition to good food, Joe offers great advice for anyone looking to cook more often and more successfully. Read his essay on how to use a recipe and you will become a better cook even before you get into the kitchen." --Jack Bishop, Editorial Director, America's Test Kitchen, and author of Vegetables Every Day "I'm thrilled to have Joe's creative collection of recipes that serve vegetables in perfect portions for quick meals by myself--it even includes a sweet selection of desserts for one (which is great because I don't have to share!). With Eat Your Vegetables as your guide, you'll be prowling the produce bins with a fresh eye on flavor." --David Lebovitz, author of Ready for Dessert and The Sweet Life in Parisshow more
