Review

Barbara Jacobs, Booklist 4/15/2011
“With the number of farmers’ markets and true vegans increasing, it was simply a matter of time until cookbooks combined those two trends. Though Scott-Goodman and Trovato certainly aren’t the first to exploit the goodness of greens (think The New Moosewood Cookbook, 2000, for one), both have enviable track records in producing top-quality culinary collections (e.g., The Ski Country Cookbook, 2008, and The Beach House Cookbook, 2005, for Scott-Goodman and Rachel Ray’s Open House Cookbook, 2006, for Trovato.The bonus here? More than 120 simple recipes that don’t require expensive equipment or unusual ingredients, except for fresh-from-the-garden artichokes to zucchini. Every veggie includes at least one recipe, along with notes about origins, best growing season, and nutrients. Among the choices: asparagus and mushroom frittata, green cabbage and apple bake, and dandelion greens with tzatziki and feta cheese. Don’t expect too many proteins here, though egg dishes are popular. Instead, use this as a guide to easy-to-cook side dishes that quickly bring the best garden crops to table.”

Kirkus, May 1, 2011
Healthy recipes for every taste bud.

Broccoli has never looked so appealing. With more than 120 simple, easy-to-prepare recipes, this cookbook makes it easy to eat green. The attractive design includes color photographs and boxed reference guides that show calorie and nutritional value. Novice gardeners will enjoy a few tips, and the authors urge those who can’t grow their own to visit a farmers’ market or local produce stand. The fresher the vegetable, the better these seasonal recipes will taste. Twenty-six green vegetables are presented in alphabetical order, from artichokes to zucchini, and each includes a background. Southern chefs will be happy to know that Smoky Collard Greens are included, as are recipes for dandelion greens, while chefs looking for new ideas will find Collard Greens and Parmesan-Roasted Fennel. Kids may hate vegetables, but veggie-laden pizzas and Macaroni and Cheese with Swiss Chard are clever ways to get them to eat their greens. The sheer variety of recipes and kitchen techniques the authors manage to pack into this slim and generously illustrated volume will stun readers—cooks can enjoy tantalizing soups, salads, sauces and pestos. Pasta lovers will find Creamy Linguine with Fresh Peas and Pancetta, and Roast Pork with Fennel or Pan-Seared Salmon with Braised Mixed Greens is a healthy way to tempt meat eaters.
Grab some cabbage and start cooking green today.

"For cooks who enjoy fresh vegetables. This cookbook provides excellent instruction in cooking and selecting a wide variety of vegetables."

BookPage Cookbook of the Month (June)
“You’ll find intriguing ways to steam, sauté, stir-fry, braise, roast and blanch them, from elegantly simple dishes like Green Bean, Prosciutto, and Parmesan Salad and sublimely summery Sautéed Snap Peas, Sweet Corn….An informative intro sets the scene for each of the 29 greens, while good header notes help you pick a peck of delicious veggie dishes.”

 

Winston-Salem Journal, 10/5/11
" a collection of contemporary and sophisticated yet accessible recipes…The title is a bit misleading, and that's a good thing here. "Eat Greens" doesn't just cover such greens as spinach and collards. It covers 26 green vegetables of all types. In fact, such nongreen veggies as corn and sweet potatoes get only peripheral treatment instead of their own chapters…The nice thing about the book is that the authors keep things simple. The book has no wild or trendy flavor combinations, no hard-to-find or super expensive ingredients. And the recipes are pretty much all easy and straightforward enough for kitchen novices…In short, this book has plenty of ideas for people, especially nonvegetarians, wanting to add vegetables to their diet.”
 
Delicious Living Magazine
“All together now: Eat your vegetables! This book is the perfect, easy resource to make that goal a reality. It features nice, bright photos, easy-to-read recipes, and an alphabetical arrangement from Artichokes and Asparagus through Escarole and Watercress to Zucchini, plus a nutritional breakdown for each food."

An absolutely wonderful cookbook for fresh garden veggies of all kinds. Lots of recipes (about 130) that are a good combination of original and classic re-makes. Recipes are clearly written in logical order. Additional notes on each veggie includes a nutrient break-down box that is very helpful when planning a menu. Book design is lovely.

Honestly, this book is exactly what I have been looking for. It will take a place of honor beside my other "what to do with all this extra garden produce" cookbooks ("Victory Garden Cookbook" and "From Asparagus to Zucchini" among them).

Great for gardeners and cooks - wonderful for farm market season! Makes a very nice housewarming or wedding shower gift.

Includes the following vegetables: artichokes, asparagus, beans, beets and beet greens, bok choy, broccoli, broccoli rabe, brussels sprouts, cabbage, celery, celery root (celeriac), collard greens, cucumbers, dandelion greens, escarole, fennel, herbs (basil, mint, dill, parsley, cilantro, etc), kale, leeks, mixed greens (kale, spinach, collards, dandelion, mustards and chards), okra, peas, peppers, salad greens (lettuces, mache, spinach, arugula, mizuna, mustard greens, chicory, radicchio, etc.), scallions, spinach, swiss chard, watercress, zucchini.

As a gardener looking to add some new items to my garden but not sure how I would use the vegetables after I harvested them, I wanted information about the nutritional value and some recipes. This book delivers both. The photographs are beautiful but it the information about each green included that makes the book so useful. The recipes are really easy to make and very tasty. If you are looking to expand your growing or farmer's market purchases, this is a great first step.

Eat Greens - Really great take on cooking!
I took this out from the Library and decided I had to have my own copy. First cookbook I've been compelled to buy in 10 years--and I have a bookcase full of classics. I love the adoration of vegetables apparent in these recipes and the information to dial you in on each one. I recommend this to anyone interested in eating delicious things and knowing it is nutritious from the way it feels inside you!

Format: Hardcover
`Eat Greens' does give recipes to use with about 30 different greens that are commonly found in most larger supermarkets or farmer's markets. It has as its goal to show what to do with those greens. They are put in alphabetical order from artichokes to zucchini; but where it could have been more of a help is to make sure each type at least has a small picture, so they are easily identifiable.
There is some advice on planting, but the emphasis is on how to choose the greens at the market and how to store them. For most the nutritional information is given, such as calories, carbohydrates, protein, fat and vitamins and minerals. There are several recipes for nearly every kind listed along with what they are, their history and some simple hints on how to serve.
Sometimes there is vital information left out, for example; leeks. We are told cleaning is labor intensive, but no information on how to accomplish this is given, which could have been as simple as cutting the leeks, separating and letting them stand in a dish of cold water. Also for a book that purports to solve the puzzle over what to do with greens; when it comes to salad greens such as bibb lettuce, romaine, arugula, escarole, there is only a sentence or two about them.

This is a book that would help those unfamiliar with many of these greens. The recipes, for the most part, are not really that original, for example, recipes include; sautéed kale, spinach and collard greens, minted pea soup, leeks and garlic, dill and parsley pesto. More experienced cooks would probably not find much new .

A lovely book to inspire creative vegetable recipes. After paging through the entire book at the public Library, I ordered it for my son and partner who have a veggie garden and who love to cook imaginatively. They are delighted with the book.

This is a nice book with over 120 easy to follow recipes featuring 26 different green vegetables & herbs arranged in alphabetical order, including information about their origin, growing habits, nutritional benefits, & tips on buying & storing. While most recipes don't include a picture of the finished dish, you will find lots of fantastic photos throughout the book showing most of the vegetables. This is a great book to have on hand if you want to learn to eat healthier.

this cookbook is educational and it has wonderful recipies. For example.... I learned that historically people ate the beet greens and not the beet root. Then the trend changed and people ate the bottom but not the top! Now we eat both. That was a fun fact I learned while reading this book. There are beautiful pictures too. Great cookbook to shake up anyones veggie recipes!
