  • ‘A delicious and much-needed nudge towards a healthier and more sustainable kitchen’ Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall

    'More than a recipe book, this is a guide for how to shop and eat now!' Skye Gyngell

    Foreword by Guy Singh-Watson, farmer and founder of Riverford.

    Bestselling author and home cook, Melissa Hemsley gives you over 100 recipes that focus on UK-grown, easy-to-buy ingredients, cutting down on food waste and putting flavour first. Eat Green is a helping hand towards eating a lot more vegetables in a way everyone can enjoy together.

    These veg-packed and veg-centric recipes are easy to make and perfect for the whole family. Chapters include: One Pot and One Tray; Cook Now, Eat Later; Family Favourites; and 30 Minutes or Less.

    Simple swaps mean that meat and fish can be added in or taken away, so everyone can enjoy a delicious meal, whether they are vegan, vegetarian, enjoying a meat-free Monday or something in between.

    Melissa’s down-to-earth approach to joyful eating encourages us to cook healthy food from scratch while being mindful of life’s pressures and time constraints. Eat Green includes plenty of:

    - easy swaps to use up food you have to hand and reinvent your leftovers
    - batch cooking advice and meals to stock up your freezer
    - quick 30-minute midweek dinners and one-pot meals
    - make-ahead packed lunches for work or weekend trips
    - family-friendly dishes and healthy spins on comfort food favourites
    - ideas for using up odds and ends that you might usually throw away

    Eat Green celebrates the pleasure of really good food anyone can cook and everyone can savour.
