Author(s): Karen Martini
Karen Martini is one of Australia's most respected chefs, and is well known for her show-stopping salads. This collection draws on her genius in teaming gorgeous produce with cheese, nuts, pastry, legumes, herbs and spices to create stunning and nourishing vegetable-led dishes that you'll make again and again. While every dish places vegetables front and centre, they are not all vegetarian. Karen uses a wide range of ingredients - such as anchovies, miso, bacon, blue cheese and toasted nuts - to make her vegetable dishes truly sing. There is a dazzling array of recipes, and every single dish is a standout. Try her whole roasted cauliflower with hot honey and feta dressing; mushroom, walnut and cheese pie; fried eggplant with savoury caramel and toasted peanuts; tagliatelle with shaved zucchini and hazelnut pesto; or tomato and haloumi scrolls. Salads Vegetables celebrates fresh produce at its absolute best and will inspire you to create stunning, delicious and healthy vegetable-based dishes every day.
Karen Martini is the author of seven top-selling cookbooks, her most recent the gorgeous New Kitchen. She enjoys a huge following through her weekly recipe feature in Fairfax's Good Food/Epicure liftouts, her role on the smash-hit series My Kitchen Rules, and her long-running segment as resident chef on Channel 7's Better Homes and Gardens, watched by more than 1.3 million viewers each week. Karen's recipes are collected, stuck on the fridge and cooked in kitchens around the country every week.
