The second in a pair of fast, season-led vegetable books from beloved author and cook Nigel Slater.

‘Much of my weekday eating contains neither meat nor fish … It is simply the way my eating has grown to be over the last few years.’

From the start of autumn, we crave food that nourishes, food that sets us up for going out in the cold and wet. Greenfeast has over 110 gently sustaining recipes from milk, mushrooms and rice – as comforting as a cashmere blanket – big soups like tahini, sesame and butternut and crumbles made with leeks, tomato and pecorino. With puddings like ginger cake, cardamom and maple syrup, these spirit-lifting recipes are a varied and glorious celebration of simple, plant-based cooking.Highlights include:

Simple filo pastry filled with cheese and greens
A savoury tart of shallots, apples and Parmesan
Soothing polenta with garlic and mushrooms
Fiery udon noodles with tomato and chillies
Creamy pudding rice with rosewater and apricots

No duds Every recipe I have tried in this book – 6 so far – has been a winner. No surprise as the spring summer one was the same for the 70+recipes I tried in that. These winter ones are a tad more complicated but many are real comfort food. Perhaps a little more calorific than the summer text but this can be dealt with by cutting down on the butter, oil and cream – which often seems over-generous. A fat free frying pan makes many of these excellent for diets but still very tasty. I never knew how many…
