The Magnificent Book of Vegetables - Alice Hart
The hunger for thoughtful, wholesome and truly delicious vegetarian recipes is only increasing, especially now that we all know that eating more veg is good for our health -- and the planet. In The Magnificent Book of Vegetables, trained chef and food writer Alice Hart shares over 80 tantalising recipes that not only taste great, but will leave you feeling amazing.
Featuring do-ahead elements to make your meal preparation easier, tips on when certain vegetables are in season, and fad-free advice, this book will prove that, with the right recipe, even a humble cabbage or beetroot can be exciting and delicious.
As a trained nutritionist, Alice knows the importance of vegetable-centric, wholefood eating, but at the same time understands that most of us lead busy lives and shop at our local supermarkets. As such, many of the recipes in this book are uncomplicated yet big on flavour, and really make the vegetable the hero of every dish. Alice shares advice on the best way to plan your shop throughout the seasons so that nothing goes to waste, even suggesting tinned, pickled or frozen swaps where possible. Start the day right with a Green quinoa breakfast bowl, whip up a batch of Kale and potato hand pies with caraway seeds for the park, and warm up a dreary winter's evening with Chard and black bean chilli with Jalepeno-cornbread crust.
