When the farmers' markets start in earnest in April and May,
Minnesotans' pent-up desire for fresh, flavorful produce is
answered immediately by rhubarb, spring onions, and tender
lettuces. Within just a few weeks, the bounty has expanded
exponentially and, before too long, those connected to a crop share
or whose market basket is perhaps a bit too accommodating may be
wondering: Just what should I do with fennel? And how can I
possibly consume all of this spinach?
Tricia Cornell comes to the rescue in Eat More Vegetables, 135
recipes arranged seasonally to correspond with our northern plenty,
from a refreshing cold beet soup in the heat of summer to a healthy
and comforting butternut squash chili for cold winter nights; from
zucchini fritters any kid will love to an adults-only melon-vodka
slushie. But this book brings value far beyond creative recipes.
Introductions to the many vegetables, fruits, and herbs stacked on
farmers' tables and in the grocery store help home cooks see
delicious possibilities in kale, cabbage, or tomatoes, while tips
for preparation and storage encourage us to make the most of our
growing season and extend the goods through fall and into winter,
until the markets open up once again.
Tricia Cornell is a writer for The Heavy Table online food
magazine and for Twin Cities Business, a former editor for
Minnesota Parent and Minnesota Good Age, and a veteran CSA
subscriber to Hog's Back Farm of Arkansaw, Wisconsin.
