Description: Vegetables! They sprout from the rich earth majestically in fabulous shades of green, orange, red, purple, yellow, pink, and white. They emerge nobly, as though already aware of the individuality and greatness of their colors, shapes, textures, tastes, and fragrances. Some would even say vegetables constitute one of nature's most exquisite displays of creativity, and yet they have customarily played only secondary roles in American cuisine. They have been devalued to a side dish, often stripped of their taste and color by careless overcooking, and mashed into unrecognizable mush.
The Great Book of Vegetables attempts to remedy this injustice. It is not only a comprehensive international collection of more than 400 delicious and healthful vegetable-based recipes, but also a guide to choosing, storing, preparing, and cooking vegetables so that they are finally treated with the respect they deserve.
Meat eaters and vegetarians alike will enjoy The Great Book of Vegetables, as many of the recipes call for meat, poultry, and fish to complement the vegetables. Classic dishes and old favorites are included alongside inventive new recipes. Here's just a small sampling: Russian Beet Pate, Pea and Wild Rice Timbales, Fennel and Lettuce au Gratin, and Avocado Ice Cream. Recipes for sauces and dressings are also included, along with a chapter of menus for entertaining. Whatever your preference, whether it be appetizers, main courses, or even desserts, you are sure to find something delectable in this very special cookbook.
