Ah, August. One of my favorite times when it comes to gardening. After months of nurturing, watering, and weeding, the veggies start to come in earnest.
If you don’t have a garden, there are low cost goodies in the grocery store and farmer’s market.
What to do with all the veggies? If you’re staring at a pile of kale or collards or Swiss chard or spinach and aren’t sure what to prepare, look no further than The Leafy Greens Cookbook by Kathryn Anible.
This book contains 100 recipes using super foods like the greens mentioned above as well as bok choy, endives and several others.
The book begins with an introduction of many greens, what they look like, and how they’re prepared. I have collard greens growing in our garden, but I haven’t picked them yet because I’ve only eaten them frozen, not fresh. This book explained how to cook them and also has such delicious recipes as Spicy Collard Greens.
In addition to side recipes, there are also recipes for vegetarian meals, main meals using meat, and smoothies.
You’ll find plenty of recipes from simple to sophisticated to prepare with your vegetable harvest.
Ulysses Press, the publisher of The Leafy Greens Cookbook, is giving one lucky Mom’s Plans reader a copy of the book. To enter, just leave a comment stating what vegetable you’d like to make more often, but you just don’t know how to prepare.
This giveaway, which will end on August 29, is open to U.S. residents ages 18+. The winner will be chosen via random.org.
I received one copy of this book for review purposes only. No other compensation was given.
