Wild About Greens: 125 Delectable Vegan Recipes for Kale, Collards, Arugula, Bok Choy, and Other Leafy Veggies Everyone Loves

Nava Atlas. Sterling, $24.95 (224p) ISBN 978-1-4027-8588-7
Atlas (Vegan Express) successfully elevates leafy greens beyond the salad bowl with this collection of recipes that will appeal to vegans and meat-eaters alike. Though she excludes cabbages and common lettuces, Atlas introduces a host of other dynamic greens—from the "bold" arugula, to the now ubiquitous kale, to the "peppery" watercress—and includes plenty of tips for buying and preparation. In addition to a host of recipes for salads, soups, and dips, Atlas shows how to incorporate a healthy portion of greens into "heartier dishes," as in quinoa with chard and chickpeas, a bean and escarole pasta, and a roasted eggplant curry. She also invites adventurous vegans to try their hand at green juices and smoothies, which utilize a broad range of ingredients, including apples, collards, chocolate (nondairy) milk, and spinach. Though each of the recipes stands alone, meat-eaters could happily pair their favorite protein with many of these dishes. Clear and simple instructions, combined with Atlas's conversational tone, make this guide to greens a valuable addition to any cook's bookshelf. Illus. & photos. (June)
