Cookbook Review-Brassicas by Laura B. Russell

Quick! Name 3 Brassicas. What?? You don't know what a Brassica is!

I am sure you are in good company, especially since I had no idea what a Brassica was until I picked up this book. If you are interested in finding out what Brassicas are and cooking them, then Brassicas by Laura B. Russell is the cook book for you. Brassicas range from the very mild Bok Choy to the pungent, Horseradish. I have never had much interest in this group of vegetables for many reasons, but Laura gives techniques for avoiding the stinkiness associated with this group of veggies.

This cookbook is not vegan, but there is a handy table at the back that identifies all the vegan recipes in the book. It is also filled with pictures, which may help you to decide that hmmm, cauliflower might be worth a try. 

I tried the Sweet Potato and Kale Saute. We devoured this in minutes on tostadas and topped with avocados. It can also be served over rice or as a side dish. This book is a good buy for persons looking to increase their intake of vegetables in a tasty way.

I received a free copy of this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for this unbiased review.
