I have been following the Mediterranean Diet for four months now and this book is perfect for following the plan.

This little book, filled with fast and inexpensive recipes that don't require a huge pantry for additional ingredients, exceeded my expectations. The recipes are organized by vegetable main ingredient, and although a few are substantial, most are light and lovely. Each veg has a brief introduction that explains when to purchase, what to look for, cooking times and methods Nothing i ...more
