Nutrient-rich, inexpensive and incredibly tasty--simple homemade Japanese tsukemono (pickles) are an integral part of everyday meals in Japan. Every Japanese family has their own tsukemono recipes handed down through the generations.

In Japanese Pickled Vegetables, dietician and fermented food expert Machiko Tateno has collected more than 120 easy, healthy recipes for pickled, preserved and fermented vegetables. These pickle recipes use ingredients that are easily available in the West--including asparagus, cabbage, eggplant, zucchini, tomatoes, garlic, daikon, turnips and squashes, olive oil, honey and yogurt. More adventurous cooks can try their hand at traditional Japanese pickled vegetables like burdock root, bitter melon, lotus root and wasabi greens.

The recipes are cross-referenced by vegetable and pickling method. A chapter on regional pickling recipes and styles lets home cooks learn more about the traditional art of tsukemono in Japan--from Tokyo to rural farm villages. A section on pickling fresh seasonal vegetables helps you to make the most of your fresh garden produce, while another provides recipes using fermented seasonings--such as Miso Marinated Garlic and Salted Peppercorns that can be used to enhance the umami flavor of any dish!

An important part of Japanese cuisine, Japanese pickles are often made the day they are eaten, and used as side dishes, bar snacks or garnishes. Whether you have your own vegetable garden and want ways to preserve your bounty into the winter, or are just looking for healthy meal inspiration, these homemade Japanese superfood recipes are a great place to start.

Chef Machiko Tateno is an expert in fermented and preserved foods, as well as a menu consultant and registered dietitian. After working for many years as the supervising dietitian at a hospital, she attended cooking schools in Japan and the world-renowned Ballymaloe Cookery School in Ireland, a pioneer in the Slow Food movement. She later served as Executive Chef at the eco-friendly Roppongi Nouen restaurant in Tokyo. Tateno now develops recipes, has written several homestyle Japanese cookbooks and organizes fermented food cooking classes. Japanese Pickled Vegetables is her first book to be translated into English.

"From speedy to more time-consuming, Tateno's techniques yield pickles from cucumbers, carrots, radishes, burdock, and umeboshi, Japan's prized pickled plums." --Booklist

"Beautifully and profusely illustrated in full color throughout, Japanese Pickled Vegetables is a unique and thoroughly 'kitchen cook friendly' addition to family, personal, professional, and community library ethnic cookbook collections." -- Midwest Book Review
