Vegetables for Breakfast from A to Z invites the reader to re-imagine breakfast, letter by letter, season by season. Just as breakfast kick-starts the day, this book kick-starts the way you cook and eat vegetables. In addition to quick, easy, delicious recipes for both vegetables and accompanying grain dishes (such as: Asparagus Almondine, Yellow Carrot Nori Rolls, Purple Daikon Corn Salad, and many more), it offers insights about the most important meal of the day, facts and tips about the vegetables’ nutrients, their effects on the body, including little known vegetable lore, and even a little dirt on the veggies themselves. It has been called “a plant-based revelation, from its inventive recipes to its innovative techniques to its thorough nutritional and horticultural information,” and “An invaluable resource for any home cook or chef that will forever change how you cook with vegetables.”
