While writing the Gramercy Tavern Cookbook, JBF Award–winning chef and author Michael Anthony found himself drawn to the most vegetable-forward dishes from the restaurant and quickly decided he needed to share his passion for produce with the public. The result of his efforts is V is for Vegetables, a new tome written for the home cook and featuring options for herbivores and omnivores alike. Anthony will serve a selection from the book at his upcoming Enlightened Eaters event, including this rustic, earthy flatbread. Combining the hearty umami of sautéed mushrooms (Anthony prefers hen of the woods or maitake) with a base of crusty flatbread and slightly bitter, verdant kale leads to a easy but elegant appetizer worthy of your next dinner party. Savory and satisfying, this hors d’oeuvre offers the kind of addictive punch of flavor that’ll have you seeing the world as Michael Anthony does: through greens-colored glasses.
