Russell (The Gluten-Free Asian Kitchen), a former cookbook editor for Food & Wine, here explains the nutritional benefits of brassicas, a type of plant in the mustard family that includes kale, broccoli, and cauliflower, and shares 80 easy recipes grouped by main ingredient. A chapter offers tips on shopping, cooking, and taming strong flavors and odors, and a special diets table identifies recipes containing common allergens. VERDICT This attractive cookbook offers health- and wellness-focused readers delicious new recipes (e.g., smoky kale salad with toasted almonds and egg). Readers looking for a more comprehensive work with less of an emphasis on health might try Diane Morgan's essential Roots: The Definitive Compendium with More Than 225 Recipes.
