Book Review: The Book of Greens

The Book of Greens: A Cook's Compendium of 40 Varieties, from Arugula to Watercress, with More Than 175 Recipes is written by Jenn Louis with  Kathleen Squires and photography by Ed Anderson.

According to the Preface, the author shared, "So as a lover of greens, I want to share what I know.... There is so much more that you can do with greens than make just a salad or side (although there are plenty of those in this book, too).... Use this book as your inspiration to make a fresh start in your home kitchen with greens. Think beyond the salad bowl and begin cooking with your greens." 

This hardcover book includes the following sections: Recipe List, Preface, The Basics, How to Use This Book, Types of Greens in This Book, Notes on Commonly Used Ingredients, Seasonal Chart, Bowls, and Greens, which range from Arugula to Bok Choy, from Chard to Kale, from Seaweed to Spinach, and many more greens! 

In the Recipe List, it's divided into the following nine sections: Starters and Snacks, Salads and Sides, Soups, Fish and Seafood, Pasta, Grains, and Dumplings, Meaty Mains, Drinks and Sweets, Veggie Mains, and Basics. And all vegetarian recipes are marked accordingly in the recipe list. 

While featuring brilliant full-color photographs, The Book of Greens is geared towards all ages, from young adults to older generations. Recommended recipe guidebook for those interested in incorporating more greens in their daily diet.

Note: I received this book from Blogging for Books, which is a program designed for bloggers to write book reviews in exchange for books, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
