Cookbook giveaway - The Power Greens Cookbook

The Power Greens Cookbook

In her latest cookbook, author and blogger Dana Jacobi expands your culinary repertoire and introduces her fifteen "Power Greens" - from arugula to watercress - that are loaded with health-supporting nutrients and phytochemicals. Jacobi also shares simple cooking techniques that help you prepare these super veggies quickly.

Kale and collards don't have to be the only greens on your shopping list anymore. Rising stars include romaine and parsley, Brussels sprouts and beet greens, and more. Even though we know they're good for us, many people are afraid that they won't taste good. Fear no more! The Power Greens Cookbook provides go-to recipes that are both nutritious and delicious. You can get a sneak peek into the book with an exclusive EYB excerpt.

We're delighted to offer five copies of the book to EYB Members in the US only. One of the entry options is to answer the following question in the comments section of this blog post:

What leafy green are you most interested in finding new ways to prepare?

    Collards.

  • madamepince  on  8/11/2016 at 4:07 PM

    It's a toss-up -- chard or bok choy. I could eat them both forever & I'd love new ways to cook them.

  • Megoola  on  8/11/2016 at 9:34 PM

    chard

  • annieski  on  8/13/2016 at 4:36 AM

    Love leafy greens, chard, kale, mustard, beet, collards.

  • ElaineMM  on  8/13/2016 at 11:46 AM

    Watercress. It's been years since I didn't care for it and I'd like to try it again.

  • CaitlinMairi  on  8/14/2016 at 1:49 PM

    Kale. I want to like it so much but can't find a way to prepare it that I love.

  • lindaeatsherbooks  on  8/15/2016 at 1:42 AM

    I need to find ways to make kale tasty. I know it's super healthy, I'm just having trouble enjoying it.

  • ballen  on  8/15/2016 at 6:00 AM

    Kale

  • RuthGo  on  8/15/2016 at 12:03 PM

    Collards! I already really like them so I'm interested in new ways to work with them.

  • sarahawker  on  8/16/2016 at 8:52 AM

    Kale, Collards, Sweet Potato.

  • kbennall  on  8/17/2016 at 4:58 PM

    I cook greens a lot, but I'm really needing new ideas for all kinds of greens.

  • eliza  on  8/19/2016 at 6:27 PM

    Swiss chard...always interested in new ways to cook it.

  • t.t  on  8/20/2016 at 2:27 AM

    chard

  • sgump  on  8/22/2016 at 8:45 PM

    I love arugula, but I usually eat it raw. I'd love some new ideas (and now I'm imagining a simple soup a la cream of spinach--but with arugula).

  • rivergait  on  8/27/2016 at 8:48 PM

    Parsley...I'm using it as a border on some of my raised veggie beds. What can I do with it?

  • earthnfire  on  8/28/2016 at 3:46 PM

    kale and broccolini

  • SamanthaV  on  8/29/2016 at 2:41 PM

    I'd love to learn how to cook Amaranth, I have a lot of it growing in the garden and never know what to do with it.

  • Jchristina  on  8/29/2016 at 7:00 PM

    I grow most of the greens in the book in 4X4 and 4X6 raised beds. Cilantro hates hot weather and I harvested it three times before it bolted (and I harvested the seeds). I especially need cilantro recipes beyond the cilantro-jalapeno hummus and use up your herbs before they die green dressing!

  • sallyc06  on  8/30/2016 at 12:56 AM

    Spinach, because its so good for us.

  • Sfgordon  on  8/30/2016 at 1:03 AM

    I always enjoy cress when I eat it at restaurants, but it's never been something I put in my shopping cart at the grocery store. I would also like to get some good ideas for radish tops because I buy radishes regularly and I never know what to do with the leaves besides throw them in stir-fry dishes as an afterthought

  • Nancith  on  8/30/2016 at 9:48 AM

    I'd like to see other ways to prepare Chinese greens besides the usual stir-frying, plus ideas for escarole.

  • DFed  on  8/30/2016 at 10:44 AM

    Kale! We get tons in our CSA box & I'm always looking for new ways to cook it!

  • mfl  on  8/30/2016 at 11:03 AM

    kale

  • Lizwizz  on  8/31/2016 at 2:48 PM

    turnip greens. They add sweetness to a medley of steamed greens but I'd love some inspiration for other than steaming them.

  • Oysterbee  on  9/2/2016 at 7:49 PM

    It's so hard to choose...okay, arugula, I just love it!

  • chiquidu  on  9/3/2016 at 7:59 AM

    Collard greens and chard.

  • Elena Rose  on  9/3/2016 at 10:29 AM

    Kale, chard and collard greens

  • nadiam1000  on  9/4/2016 at 8:06 AM

    Chard-I see colorful varieties at the farmer's market and I would love to learn how to prepare it well

  • Teruska  on  9/5/2016 at 12:53 PM

    Greens might be our favorite vegetable group. I would like to learn anything I can!

  • sabrina7  on  9/5/2016 at 10:04 PM
