Food writer, cookbook author and teacher James Peterson has published yet another book of his favourite vegetable-based dishes, Vegetables, Revised (2012 Ten Speed Press). Have you ever purchased bundles of produce at the farmers’ market only to arrive home and wonder what to do with your bag of fiddlehead ferns, zucchini flowers, bamboo shoots, or cactus pads? Peterson’s collection of some 300 recipes showcases the versatility of vegetables in both familiar and unexpected ways. Find recipes for refreshing salads, soups, stews, casseroles and pastas, including this artichoke, rice and chicken salad (pictured above).
Plus, try dishes from his Kitchen Simple cookbook.
