Tenderheart is the happy outcome of McKinnon’s love of vegetables. From Miso Mushroom Ragu with Baked Polenta to Celery and Vermicelli Spring Rolls to Sweet Potato and Black Sesame Marble Bundt, Tenderheart features 22 essential fruits and vegetables that become the basis for over 180 recipes. In this tender tribute to her father and his experience as an immigrant, McKinnon explores how food connects us to our loved ones, even when they are no longer with us—and gives us the tools to make recipes that are healthful, economical, and bursting with flavor.
