The Veggie Queen: Vegetables Get the Royal Treatment by Jill Nussinow, M.S., R.D. is packed with simple instructions for unique and tasty ways to create delicious vegetable dishes that every member of your family is sure to enjoy.

Just about everyone needs to increase their consumption of fresh, healthful vegetables. The more ways we know how to prepare vegetables, the more likely we are to cook and eat them on a regular basis. The recipes you'll find in The Veggie Queen: Vegetables Get the Royal Treatment make it easier than ever to enjoy fresh veggies prepared at home. The great variety of recipes provides a great way to encourage your family to eat more vegetables and to try new types of veggies.

The book's chapters are organized by season, so that readers can easily select recipes that will use the freshest seasonal vegetables available at any given time. Dishes prepared with veggies that are available year round are in a separate chapter from the recipes prepared with seasonal items. Additionally, you can find recipes for your pressure cooker in a separate chapter.
