The Book of Greens by Jenn Louis with Kathleen Squires

The Book of Greens is a truly beautiful book.  It, and books like it, are what make a book lover want the real thing – an actual book!  When I picked the book up for the first time, I was amazed by the texture of the cover and the embossed lettering.  I felt as though I were caressing something I loved.

Then I opened it. 175 recipes using greens – all kinds of greens, many I have never heard of.  I am so excited to begin exploring these recipes for new taste delights.

The photographs, by Ed Anderson, are stunning.  The foods are rich in color, each picture a work of art that creates a mouth watering response!   I love to cook and so cookbooks are an essential in my home. I have always been a believer in eating whole foods and plenty of vegetables and I admit, greens are my favorite.

Tomorrow night I am going to try the Grilled Romaine Hearts with Bagna Cauda for a spicy, salty treat!
