Overview


Following the success of her bestseller The Book of Kale, Sharon Hanna is back, teaming up with gardening editor Carol Pope for The Book of Kale and Friends. There are good reasons why the Kale Revolution is growing — this humble leafy green is one of the healthiest vegetables on earth, it thrives in winter and sweetens in the cold, it self-seeds, its flowers sustain bees, and it’s so easy to grow that anyone who tries will feel like a master gardener with almost no effort. In addition to more tips on kale cultivation, Sharon and Carol invite readers to branch out with 13 other superfood crops that are equally easy to grow, as well as nutritious and versatile in the kitchen, including arugula, basil, chives, cilantro, herb fennel, garlic, lovage, mint, oregano, parsley, rosemary, sage, and thyme. With abundant vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free recipes, The Book of Kale and Friends has something to please every palate. Even the family pooch is invited to enjoy the healthy harvest with Kale Doggy Biscotti!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for The Book of Kale:
“It has real personality and charm and the overall results are delicious.” — Taste Canada jury
Library Journal
09/15/2014
In their follow-up to The Book of Kale, writer Hanna and gardening expert Pope teach readers how to cultivate, harvest, eat, and cook with kale and other "superfoods," including arugula, basil, lovage, parsley, and thyme. They share a variety of useful kitchen techniques—including how to dry kale leaves and turn them into nutritious flakes that can be easily hidden from picky eaters—as well as more than 50 "superfast meal ideas" (e.g., tortellini with kale soup, kale cobb salad) that are practical, inexpensive, and nutritious. They devote the rest of the book to mostly vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free recipes, such as kale-packed twists on guacamole and hummus, creative soups and salads, and even desserts and dog biscuits. VERDICT Recommended for readers who seek a deeper understanding of kale and other superfoods—one that goes far beyond how to turn them into chips.
