Great cookbook, buying caution 23 April 2007
By Allen L. Penticoff - Published on
Praise: Great veggie cookbook. I call it a REVERSE cookbook - where you look up the ingredient you have (veggie) and there are recipes to make with it - rather than trying to find the stuff to make the recipe. Tasty recipes too. A must for every vegetarian's shelf.

Caution: There is a pamphlete version out there that can be mistaken for a "book". It is much smaller in dimension, and pages - does not have all the recipes. Be sure you are getting the full size version - 8.5" X 11", 228 pages. (I learned this the hard way.)

Delicious recipes, informative food facts 21 Dec. 2005
By B. BINGHAM - Published on
Every recipe that I have made from this book has been outstanding, and a bit addictive! Any time I have shared some of this yummy food with friends, they always ask for the recipe and information on this book. There is a great variety of recipes, something to satisfy every type of chef and picky eater. This collection is a great way to get back to the healthy "slow foods" that we should enjoy more often. YUMMY!!!

Wonderful alphabetical guide to using fresh produce 23 May 2007
By Laurie J. Neverman - Published on
Verified Purchase
Not only is this a recipe book, it also offers general background information, cooking tips, storage tips, suggested substitutions, kids' recipes, basic food preservation information and a resource section. From the common to the more obscure, there are dozens of great recipes to help you make the most of fresh produce. I finally have some recipes for gobo and Jerusalem artichoke. Some recipes even list preferred varieties of a particular produce for their specific attributes. A must have for those looking to utilize local, seasonal produce.

Excellent recipes for using veggies--from an agriculture coop 16 Jan. 2007
By Kokopelli - Published on
This is one great fresh-veggie cookbook! It was free to advance-subscribers to a local Farm Coop (each family in our PA county pays a certain seasonal fee to a farm coop, and then picks up a weekly cardboard box stuffed with that week's fresh-picked organic produce.

I just purchased a copy of the same cookbook from Amazon.

We use Asparagus to Zucchini all the time--and in winter, we substitute frozen or canned veggies for fresh. EASY, DELICIOUS recipes, classic old time and new -- soups, stews, casseroles, salads, main dishes. I have millions of cookbooks--this one, I actually use--a lot.

An invaluable reference book! 5 July 2007
By E. Murphy - Published on
We recently began receiving produce from our CSA in Amherst, Massachusetts, and we would be lost without this book. It has helped us to identify and distinguish between the assortment of greens we receive, and has instructions for optimal storage, preparation and cooking techniques for an array of produce. Highly recommended!
