“Joe Yonan is a kindred spirit; he too is a meat lover who’s embarked on a vegetable-forward adventure and made more room for plants on the plate. But he’s done much more in Eat Your Vegetables: Joe invites us along for a delicious ride that includes the highs and lows of edible gardening and the joy of cooking for one (with smart, practical tips for managing leftovers and minimizing food waste), wrapped in an impassioned plea to get off the couch and—yes!—into the kitchen.” 

Kim O’Donnel, author of The Meat Lover’s Meatless Celebrations and The Meat Lover’s Meatless Cookbook

An increasing number of people are showing interest in plant-based meals, some for the nutritional benefit, some looking to add a sustainable practice and others in search of economic value. Eat Your Vegetables by Joe Yonan, is the perfect book for anyone looking to expand their produce-based culinary repertoire. Yonan’s friendly voice and straight forward cooking style empowers both the home cook and the experienced vegetarian chef to be bold and pursue their vegetable-centric interest, even if the pursuit only yields a single serving.

“It's been my ongoing mission to get single folks - 31 million of us in the United States alone - to realize that cooking for ourselves, despite the obstacles, is a worthwhile, satisfying, potentially meditative, possibly invigorating, and maybe even delightful endeavor."

Joe Yonan Eat Your Vegetables

This book is filled with 80 inspired vegetarian, vegan, and flexitarian recipes such as Spicy Kale Salad with Miso-Mushroom Omelet, Thai-Style Kabocha Squash and Tofu Curry, and a One Peach Crisp with Cardamom and Honey. In addition to these out-of-the-box recipes, look for the everyday tips on shopping, storing, and salvaging leftover ingredients.

They were so wonderful that we chose TWO WINNERS!

The winners chosen at random are Darcie who said:

When I'm cooking for one, I like having my meal in a bowl. My favorite thing is to make homemade udon noodles with a spicy miso broth, poached egg, and throwing in some fresh mushrooms and spinach. I'd love more ways to incorporate veggies in my meals.
and Maritza who said:
I love Kale in soups or sauté with garlic. I also use it in juicing or smoothies. The Kale that comes in the Farm Fresh box is so fresh and delicious. I love getting my Farm Fresh box -- it's like Christmas every other Tuesday.

Congratulations Darcie and Maritza!
