Overview

Most vegetables can be prepared quickly, but in many cases fast recipes yield lackluster, predictable results. Vegetables need a bit of coaxing and a light hand to bring forth their natural flavors. So what's the secret? Here at America's Test Kitchen, we spent thousands of hours testing countless cooking techniques to find out which methods worked best for each of 350 different vegetable recipes.

Now you can have, all in one volume, more well-tested recipes than you will ever need to prepare virtually any vegetable from broccoli and potatoes to spinach and zucchini. Is it better to blanch or steam broccoli? Is there a way to glaze carrots without turning them into a sugary confection? Will washing mushrooms really cause them to become waterlogged? You'll find all the answers here along with illustrations of key techniques. Dozens of common kitchen tools and staples-everything from pepper mills and skillets to olive oil and salt-have also been tested, tasted, and rated. This practical, thoroughly tested cookbook will become your key source for information about vegetables, whether you are looking for new ways to flavor green beans or a foolproof method for making french fries at home.
