Review Text

What is it about green vegetables that relegates them to the bottom of the ladder in the food stakes? Conduct a national survey and the poor old Brussels sprout would no doubt be nominated as the vegetable we most like to hate, followed fairly closely by cabbage and an assortment of other green vegetables. This wonderful book, packed with recipes that will give your cooking a real boost, is set to put green vegetables back on the culinary map. While the Brussels sprout soup might be pushing the bounds of credibility just a little too far for your first foray, the leek and spinach filo triangles are filled with flavour and bring a new respect for both vegetables. Filled with a delicious combination of feta and ricotta cheese, they are simple to make and mouth-wateringly delicious, and, according to the author, packed with fibre and iron. Not all the recipes in this book are exclusively for green vegetables. Minestrone with red pesto, for example, incorporates a variety of colours and flavours and is spectacularly topped with an explosion of flavour in the form of a sun-dried tomato and basil pesto. And this isn't just another vegetarian cookbook - beef with broccoli and oyster sauce makes a quick and flavour-filled family meal, while the spiced lamb with shredded spinach, with its combination of cumin, coriander and chilli, sets the taste buds tingling. Full of interesting nutritional information and hints on choosing and using greens, this book makes a compelling read for anyone interested in food. We all know that we should be eating more fruit and vegetables, and with the inspiration contained here we can actually do it. (Kirkus UK)show more
