emeril green season premiere 09Tomorrow night, Emeril Lagasse's successful new show, "Emeril Green," continues on the Discovery Planet Green network. It is mostly shot on location at Whole Foods Market, and showcases Emeril's efforts to help today's chefs cook with a healthy lifestyle in mind.

Instead of focusing on creating purely gourmet concoctions, Emeril "goes green" in this series by taking the eco-friendliness up a notch. He encourages using organic ingredients, shopping for local produce, and buying items that support fair trade and sustainable agricultural systems.

Here's a sneak peek at what you'll see on tomorrow's episode:

Emeril's challenge is to help a married couple to eat less red meat, despite the fact that they are lovers of ethnic cuisine. His solution? Mushrooms! Three dishes you'll see Emeril cook up on the show are Chayote ceviche, gnocchi, and an exotic mushroom ragu, arepas with mushrooms and cheese, and soba noodle soup with cloud ear and shiitake mushrooms.

Kermit the Frog might disagree with Emeril Lagasse on this one -- it really is easy being green. And that's what Emeril hopes to prove in each episode to come.

The next "Emeril Green" is on Monday, October 5, at 8:00 p.m. ET on Discovery's Planet Green.
