Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Thai red curry squash soup

    • Alifar on January 14, 2022

      Delicious soup. I have substituted other oven-roasted vegetables to good effect. I didn't manage to make the shallots crispy!

    • msmuggins666 on December 05, 2021

      Amazing soup! I was doubtful about the crispy shallot garnish but it really adds depth. Likewise, don’t forget the lime juice at the end, it makes a huge difference!

  • Turkish tomato and onion salad with olive oil and pomegranate molasses

    • southerncooker on June 01, 2022

      Very good. I didn't use the optional mint

  • Collard greens stewed with tomato, shallots and ginger

    • pagesinthesun on March 18, 2022

      I enjoyed this preparation of collard greens. Vegetarian. Silky greens, unctuous sauce. It would be great with an addition of beans and served over rice. I ate this out of the bowl, exactly as written.

  • Kale salad with smoked almonds and picada crumbs

    • Zosia on January 03, 2022

      Tasty winter salad. It held up quite well even on the second day (without breadcrumbs which were added just before serving)

  • Soy-braised baby bok choy with scallions

    • Zosia on January 03, 2022

      Nice alternative to stir fried. It took longer for the liquid to evaporate than the recipe stated and regardless of how well this was done, the vegetable dish was a little on the wet side (as a braised dish typically is lol)

  • Cauliflower-scallion frittata with harissa and feta

    • Zosia on January 03, 2022

      Good but not particularly special. You really must cut the cauliflower that small for it to cook through.

    • et12 on June 28, 2022

      Like previous reviewer, we felt this was good but not particularly memorable. I liked the crunchy texture of the cauliflower and the strong dill flavour but felt it could use more harissa. I used a light feta which didn’t stand up to the cooking process and didn’t have enough salt to season.

  • Japanese-style glazed sweet potatoes with sesame

    • ShannonS on December 21, 2021

      Delicious with Japanese sweet potatoes. Added a couple extra tablespoons water and cooked about 25 minutes to get the right texture and glaze consistency.

  • Afghan-style braised butternut squash with garlic-mint yogurt

    • ShannonS on December 21, 2021

      I used delicata instead of butternut squash and only simmered 20 minutes.

  • Coconut curry with carrots and broccoli

    • Lepa on April 28, 2022

      This was very mediocre and not a repeat. The flavor was mild and muddy. Disappointing.

  • Habanero-onion soup with lime

    • Maefleur on March 03, 2022

      The habanero provides a nice warmth, and is not overwhelming in this light and flavorful soup.

  • Asparagus and barley soup with lemon and dill

    • Maefleur on March 03, 2022

      We took advantage of a sale on asparagus this week and I was so happy to see this recipe. The addition of the dill and lemon at the end brought it all together. A lovely light, bright soup.

  • Sichuan dry-fried cauliflower

    • et12 on January 18, 2022

      Easy to make and delicious! We had it with rice which made for a complete meal. Ne t time I think I’ll add cashews at the end which I think would work well with this dish.

  • Greek-style rice with leeks

    • et12 on April 10, 2022

      Took me twice as long as the recipe mentioned to evaporate the water but still worth it. A very tasty risotto type dish, especially if you love leeks!

  • Cauliflower with eggs, capers and lemon

    • et12 on June 23, 2022

      This was a gentle dish with some good comforting flavours. We had it as a main but I think it would make a good side dish for a bbq. I used regular breadcrumbs instead of panko but I think panko would add good crunch.

  • Pasta with tomatoes, peas and pancetta

    • et12 on February 17, 2022

      Tasty and easy to make.

  • Cauliflower and chickpea tagine

    • et12 on February 25, 2022

      Good, subtle flavours and easy enough to throw together but felt it lacked the intensity of flavour one would expect from Milk Street recipes.

  • Broccoli and kimchi fried rice with "poached" eggs

    • Skamper on May 12, 2022

      We both enjoyed this. The seasoning was perfect; I didn't add anything else. The eggs took much longer to cook. Next time I will fry or poach them in the usual way.

  • Zucchini and chickpea salad with tahini yogurt

    • Skamper on June 21, 2022

      This made a refreshing and light dinner on a warm night when we'd had a later than usual lunch. This makes more dressing than is needed. I added another 1/4 tsp of za'atar and 1/2 tsp salt after mixing. the sumac is a nice touch.

  • Roasted Romanesco with smoked paprika yogurt

    • hbakke on March 01, 2022

      We had this as a side dish, but I think that it would make a nice main as well. The smoky flavored sauce was nice with the roasted romanesco. My romanesco wasn't quite done at 40 minutes, so I would would cook it a bit longer next time.

  • Curried parsnips with basil and coconut

    • mpo on March 11, 2022

      This was a very flavorful dish. I added some green beans in the last few minutes. I’d make this again.

  • Curried eggplant and chickpea stew

    • dc151 on January 21, 2022

      A simplified version of the Indian dish chole baigan, this was super quick, very flavorful given a relatively short ingredient list. A bit too heavy with the lemon juice for me, but the others liked it just fine. Served with some curried chicken, brown rice and a loaf of bread, since that's what I had on hand instead of naan. I'm sure the traditional version of chole baigan is better, and I will definitely make at some point, but a quick mid-week meal is a nice thing to have on file.

  • Leek, kale and Emmentaler panade

    • dc151 on March 07, 2022

      I made this with baby spinach and gruyere instead of kale and emmentaler. Also used veg broth to keep it vegetarian. Great use of very stale old baguette and some leftover cheese. I've made similar stratas with a custard base, this was a nice twist on that, a lighter version.

Publishers Text

A vegetable-cooking bible with more than 250 full-flavor recipes, moving vegetables into the center of the plate from the realm of sides and salads, from James Beard and IACP award-winner Christopher Kimball's Milk Street

Leave behind your sad steamed broccoli, your bland boiled cabbage, your lackluster canned peas, and make room for an exciting new world of vegetable cooking featuring high-heat roasts, drizzles of turmeric-infused honey, and stir-fries aromatic with Sichuan peppercorns, ginger and garlic. Milk Street Vegetables will transform the way you cook, eat, and think about produce as you discover rich flavors and layers of texture through these inspired recipes that will have you seeing vegetables as much more than an afterthought to any meal.

With 250-plus vegetable-forward recipes (many of them vegan or vegetarian), this cookbook highlights the diversity and depth of flavor that vegetables offer while also showing how meat and dairy can play a supporting role as savory or flavor-enhancing seasonings, from a sprinkle of ground pork in a vegetable stir fry or a bit of chopped pancetta to flavor dry-fried cauliflower.

Organized by ingredient, Milk Street: Vegetables will span the produce aisle and farmer's market, from the staples you already love to a few new items you've always been curious about but didn't know how to approach. Whether it's mellowing honey-glazed Brussels sprouts with a speedy skillet char or boiling-then-roasting whole heads of cauliflower until caramel rich, Vegetables once again provides the signature Milk Street mix of ease and technique that will answer the home chef's essential question--What should I make tonight?--and change the way you cook.
