The chapters are organized by ingredient, from beans, lentils and grains; leaves and greens; vegetables; noodles and rice; to meat, fish and poultry; and each recipe includes advice on advance preparation and possible variations. There are recipes for tasty dressings, and feature spreads offer guidance on choosing and using ingredients.
