Tenderheart is a book about vegetables. It is also a story of unbreakable family bonds, love and loss, and the legacy of food as a way to stay connected to loved ones, including those who have passed.

In this masterwork from Australia's most respected vegetable-loving food writer, Hetty Lui McKinnon takes readers on a vegetable-by-vegetable journey, packed with clever and inventive ways to combine ingredients, flavours and texture. With practicality, accessibility and economy in mind, Hetty devotes one chapter to each of her 22 favourite everyday vegetables, from Asian greens to zucchini. As is Hetty's signature, the flavours are globally inspired, with an emphasis on simple yet inventive weeknight cooking.

180 new, inspired and always delicious recipes will change how you see the humble vegetable and what it is capable of, forever. This is the ultimate vegetable bible from Australia's reigning salad queen.

Recipes include: Broccoli wontons with umami crisp; Cauliflower and kale pesto pasta salad with burrata; Smoky eggplant and lentil stew with baked feta; Tiger salad with green tea noodles; Torn lasagne with kale and kimchi; Southern fried mushrooms; Tingly 'cacio e pepe' snow peas with rice noodles; Salt and pepper potato gems; Seaweed burnt butter pasta; Spinach and mint ruffled milk pie; Carrot and almond polenta cake with lemon drizzle; Ginger and date sticky rye puddings; Spiced pumpkin doughnuts.
