People are eating more greens and grains and feeling virtuous about the abundant vitamins and minerals and invaluable protein and fiber. Best of all, these foods are utterly delicious! The 45 creative recipes in this book combine greens and grains in dishes for all meal occasions that burst with flavor, color, and lusciousness. These flexible recipes not only make weeknight dinners, many requiring only one pot, but also provide a comprehensive reference of cooking methods for dozens of grains, from quinoa to rye berries. More than 30 mouthwatering photographs convey the beauty of grains and "hot" greens, such as kale, chard, spinach, escarole, nettles, and collards. This is an indispensable book for the health-conscious home cook.

"(A) cookbook that can hold us to our healthy-eating resolution this year;...the book turns nutritional powerhouses into dishes that taste anything but dutiful (here's to you, Farro, Chard, and Ricotta Casserole)." - Sunset Magazine
