Eat Green

Delicious flexitarian recipes for planet-friendly eating

Summary



‘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 easy 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 simple 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.
