What's in the book?

5 chapters filled with mouthwatering recipes...

  • Kale

    Kale

    Everybody knows kale is incredibly nutritious, but this book celebrates the versatility and flavor of the rock-star vegetable. You’ll learn how to prep, sauté, braise and grill it... cooking elegant and utterly delicious recipes with kale has never been so easy.

  • Swiss Chard & Beet Greens

    Swiss Chard & Beet Greens

    These tender leafy green cousins are succulent and packed with earthy flavors. And while Swiss chard is more common — often found in soups and salads, or sautéed on its own — many people never think to cook with beet tops. Add a few beet green recipes to your quiver, and you’ll see what they’re missing.

  • Spinach

    Spinach

    Spinach is perhaps the easiest green to cook with — raw spinach salads take no prep at all, and when sautéed, the greens wilt in seconds. But let's not overlook its incredible flavor! The exuberant dishes in this chapter capture the essence of the tender leaves, as well as the ease of cooking with them.

  • Other Leafy Greens

    Other Leafy Greens

    Collard greens, chicory, mustard greens, escarole, stinging nettle, radish greens (yes, radish tops are edible!)… These leafy greens are so versatile and flavorful that they each deserve a chapter of their own. Here you’ll find a sample of creative recipes that truly make the less-appreciated leafy greens shine.

  • Basics

    Basics

    The kind of recipes you use over and over again. The kind that are indispensable in your kitchen. Vegetable stock… cooked dried beans… condiments… pizza dough. You’ll find these practical “kitchen basics” referenced in several of the book's flagship recipes — and they are included here for your guidance.

…and 32 videos to guide you along the way. Here’s a sample!

What you’ll get

Kale and other leafy veggies are often called “superfoods,” and are loaded with nutritional benefits. But many popular kale recipes overlook the green’s stunning flavor and versatility — kale is so much more than just a health food! If you’ve been wondering how to cook kale and other leafy greens in a way that is healthy — but still jumps off the plate with flavor — then this cookbook is for you.

In Kale & Super Greens, Viviane puts flavor first — with stunning, gourmet-yet-simple recipes for every occasion. Whether it’s for a casual weekday lunch or an elegant dinner party, these easy-to-make recipes — many with step-by-step “how-to” videos — will deliver just what you’re looking for. And, because kale and other leafy vegetables are available year-round, this truly is a cookbook for all seasons.
