Mark Bittman is one of the nation's best-known and most widely respected food writers. The author of the legendary How to Cook Everything and How to Cook Everything Vegetarian, he's a master of the art of simple, healthy home cooking. In this new reissue of Leafy Greens, he describes and explains more than 30 different types of greens—from arugula to kale to wakame (a sea vegetable)—and offers healthy recipes for each green along the way. As one blogger celebrating the book recently put it, "it demystifies obscure greens and celebrates overlooked ones."
You'll find more than 120 delicious anti-oxidant-packed recipes for salads, soups, stews, stir-fries, sautés, and more, as well as nutritional information, advice on buying and cooking greens, and which greens make good substitutes for one another.
