In his first book, called Beginnings, chef Chris Cosentino— a prolific Tweeter with more than 100,000 followers at @offalchris—focuses on Italian-inspired, vegetable-focused dishes rather than the innard-centric food he is well known for serving at his San Francisco restaurant, Incanto.    Tips for Preparing Greens  

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large pot, heat the 2 tablespoons of oil. Add the onion and garlic and cook over moderate heat until softened, 5 minutes. Add the chiles and cook until sizzling, 1 minute. Add the dandelion greens and cook, stirring, until wilted, 1 minute. Add the stock and pecorino rind and bring to a boil. Simmer over low heat until the greens are very tender, about 1 hour. Season with salt.

Step 2    

Rub the grilled bread with the lemon. Place a baguette slice in each of 6 bowls. Ladle in the greens and broth, drizzle with olive oil and garnish with pecorino. Serve with the remaining toasts.
