LIVING WITH GREEN POWER
A Gourmet Collection of Living Food Recipes
By Elysa Markowitz
Alive Books, 1997
Hard Cover $24.95

Green Power For those who own the Green Power machine, a juicer that allows one to make not only juice, but soups, crackers, pates, and pies, this book is a gem. From her opening chapter, Getting Ready to Prepare the Food to her excellent section on Food Resources, Elysa is the ultimate guide. If you've just purchased the machine, this book is a must. The author demonstrates her expertise by offering step-by-step instructions in the use of this equipment. She also shows how one can enjoy versatility in food preparation with this single kitchen appliance.

Her chapter Juicy Juices contains 46 recipes, such as her Bunnies Will Stay Juice made with carrots, kale, cucumber, apple, parsley and anise to Sweet Popeye Blend with spinach, arugula, carrots, and anise. Chapter IV, Frubet, combines dried, fresh and frozen fruits into sauce-like sorbets. Just perusing the selections made us salivate. Unfortunately, we don't own a Green Power Machine and were unable to actually prepare these tempting combinations.

This creative author does not limit her abilities to juices alone. Her book has many original recipes that beckon, such as her hearty entrees. Whata Walnut Loaf, Sprouted Nori Rolls, and Sunny Broccoli-Carrot Pate. Her desserts are equally elegant with Picky Pecan Pie, Carob Mint Pie and Key Lime Parfait.

What amazed us is that with her unbridled creativity, Elysa has adapted this machine's abilities to encompass the preparation of every course a breakfast, lunch, or dinner could require.

Looking through the pages, we were dazzled by the gorgeous photography, layout design, and food styling displayed on nearly every page. Many of the photos zoom in to show fruits or vegetables that are larger than life. The colors are brilliant and display Elysa's finished dish to perfection. Our only disappointment with the book is that it lacked a standard index so necessary for quickly locating a recipe by name. Living With Green Power is an outstanding book that ought to be a companion to the Green Power Machine
