Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Tuscan kale with white beans and garlic

    • lorloff on January 28, 2017

      I also used canned beans. To try to replace some of the flavor that came from the onions, Thyme and Bay I thinly sliced onions and slowly sautéed them with olive oil, thyme and bay while I was cutting the Kale, Then I sautéed the Kale and as it was getting cooked I added th canned cannellini beans. Then sautéed it all together and added the olive oil and the garlic at the end it was very flavorful. Used a little bone stock instead of he bean stalk which I did hot have

      I used canned beans instead of dried, so it was a much quicker recipe because that cuts out the soaking and cooking the beans. Very well received results, we didn't know if we liked kale. This is not bitter at all.

  • Basic pizza dough

    • Christine on July 27, 2012

      This dough is really easy to make in the food processor. I substituted white whole wheat flour and the dough still turned out great. It's also easy to halve the recipe if you only want to make one pizza.

  • Summer vegetable bread pudding

    • hillsboroks on July 24, 2016

      The aroma of this bread pudding is fabulous and it is a great way to use up odds and ends of bread and vegetables. The flavor was great when warm and will probably be lovely when cooled. The fontina cheese and herbs are what really take this dish over the top so don't skimp on them. That said I had a few issues with the recipe, some were my fault and others the authors' fault. First, I used stale bread, not dry bread, and should have probably reduced the milk by 1/2 cup. The author doesn't give weights or cup measures for the amount of vegetables and in the future I would aim for about 1 cup of each vegetable and let the tomatoes drain in advance. I ended up sauteing the vegetables for 6 minutes for each group to try to rid them of extra moisture but it still took 1 1/2 hours in the oven to bake completely. I also would have preferred ingredients to be listed in the order they are used so that the ingredients are more easily prepped as the recipe calls for them.

  • Curried spinach and shrimp

    • anightowl on November 08, 2018

      This recipe was quite good, and easy to make. I added a few cashews and a sprinkle of shredded coconut to finish.

  • Smothered pork chops

    • barbarajane on August 20, 2014

      This is a quick easy way to dress just plain old pork chops up a bit. It is especially nice in late summer when the peppers are so beautiful here in Wisconsin. I like to serve it with rice.

  • Sesame broccoli noodle salad

    • lkgrover on October 10, 2018

      Simple broccoli & Asian noodles recipe, with a slightly sweet sauce. I substituted somen noodles for Chinese noodles (or rice noodles).

  • Garlic- & cheese-crumbed cauliflower

    • lkgrover on April 16, 2018

      Good side dish. I used Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs and cheddar cheese (not Gruyère). Omit salt if using commercial breadcrumbs.

Publishers Text

When height-of-the-season farmers' market offerings are irresistible; when backyard gardens are exploding with what appear to be hundreds of perfect tomatoes; or when the same old methods for cooking green beans or corn don't offer enough flavor, Andrea Chesman is ready with a bounty of creative recipes that bring out the best in fresh produce.

Chesman knows what it's like to be facing pounds of perishable vegetables, and as she developed 175 recipes that place garden freshness center stage, she followed these guidelines: Simple. Delicious. Harmonized with the growing seasons.

The vegetables are organized by crop-readiness, with many recipes following the wisdom that vegetables that ripen together taste good together. Popular techniques such as roasting and grilling bring out the flavor in recipes such as Grilled Chicken and Asparagus Salad, Roasted Leek Tart, Soy-Sesame Grilled Eggplant, and Maple Roasted Carrots. Main-dish and side salads abound: Beet and New Potato Salad, Warm Mushroom Salad, Spinach Salad with Feta and Pecans, Everyday Tomato-Cucumber Salad. And the deep flavors of autumn are celebrated in Braised Belgian Endives, Holiday Brussels Sprouts with Pecans and Cranberries, and Chocolate Chip Carrot Cake.

Serving Up the Harvest is an inspirational collection for everyone who wants to enjoy fresh, local, seasonal vegetables with every meal. (Previously published as The Garden-Fresh Vegetable Cookbook: Andrea Chesman's Harvest of Home-Grown Recipes)
