Fresh & Green: (Hardcover) by Zilli, Aldo
Italian cusine is brimming over with sun-kissed vegetables that are so full of flavor and versatility they make a meal on their own. This collection is full of delicious, meatfree Mediterranean dishes to eat all year long. This is the perfect collection for cooks who have a vegetarian coming to dinner, who want to know how to do a meat-free dinner party or celebration meal, or who need to relearn family meal planning when one teenager decides to go veggie. The core of the recipes are inspired by the famously healthy Italian diet with its emphasis on fresh vegetables and fruit, but chef Aldo Zilli has added his unique slant by adapting dishes he discovered in Asia and South America like toasted tofu, smoky black beans, roasted aubergines, and grilled haloumi. The book includes metric and imperial measurements as well as a conversion chart.
