You know I keep an eye out for free and discounted Kindle cookbooks all the time, and today there is a cookbook being offered for free that’s worth telling you about. The “Farmer’s Market Seasonal Cookbook: Cooking Fresh Food Fast While Eating Local and Staying Green” by Karen Pettine, which was released earlier this month, is free right now.

The book is divided into the four seasons, and there are 15 recipes for each season that feature fresh vegetables and fruits. Here are a few of the recipes that have caught my attention:


Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Sesame Green Beans

Zesty Radish Dip


Sweet Corn and Black Bean Tacos

Quinoa Pear Salad


Endive Gratin

Cauliflower Puffs


Pasta Shells with Kale Pancetta

Herbed Potato Soup

Most of the recipes in the book are vegetarian, but there are a few that include meat.

“The Farmer’s Market Seasonal Cookbook” has a list price of $3.49, and there is no way of knowing when it will change from free to its regular price. If the title interests you, you should get it now. It has eight 5-star reviews so far, and reviewers are saying things like the recipes are easy, it’s a good way to get recipes to use what’s in your CSA box, and the recipes that have been made are “out of this world.”
