10 hero vegetables. 100 delicious and simple ways to cook them.
Kathy Slack takes us through a year in her veg patch in this celebration of her ten favourite things to grow and eat.
With chapters on peas, lettuce, courgettes, beans, tomatoes, beetroot, squash, apples, kale and leeks, each dish takes a hero vegetable and builds a meal around it. Many, though not all, are vegetarian making this a book for any day of the week from meat-free Monday to a Sunday roast.
Here are recipes to herald the start of spring (Pea, Feta and Mint Frittata) to enjoy on a sweltering summer day (Tomato Salad with Anchovy Breadcrumbs) to warm you up as the nights start to draw in (Pumpkin Tikka Masala) and to hunker down with in depths of winter (Leek and Chestnut Crumble).
Whether you grow your own vegetables at home or buy them at the supermarket, these are delicious, plant-filled recipes for every day.
