Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I initially found this beautiful book at the library and thought it would be a great resource for cooking some of the greens I see at farmers' markets. It is that, but so much more. After trying 2 recipes and being astounded, I had to buy it. Nava Atlas is a magician with ingredients, seasonings, and combinations. This book is a reference source as well. You can start with some greens, a question, an idea, or just some curiosity, and will find just what you need. I'm not a vegan or a vegetarian, but have always loved vegetables, and now greens and other vegetables are becoming the focal point of many meals just because they're so delicious (and easy to prepare)!
