    Default Greens, greens, the magical...

    I'm growing bored with the usual ways of preparing greens like chard,
    kale, mustard greens, or collard greens.

    I've tried kale and chard raw in salads. I've slow-cooked all of them
    with bacon or ham. I've had kale with mushrooms and lentils. For Lundi
    Gras I cooked collard greens and mustard greens with carrots, onions,
    and andouille. I've cooked them "agrodolce" with onions, red wine
    vinegar, raisins, red pepper flakes, and pine nuts. I've made gratins
    out of them. I've cooked them plain and served them topped with chopped
    hard-boiled eggs or as filling in an omelet (usually with cheese). I've
    made gumbo z'herbes with them. I've used braised kale as a hot dog
    topping (kind of an improved sauerkraut). I've had chard/ricotta gnudi
    and ravioli. I've had chard steamed, chilled, and sprinkled with sesame
    oil and sesame seeds. I've had greens with béchamel sauce, mornay sauce,
    coconut curry sauce, and hot sauce. I've even had the rather odd
    "tourtes de Blettes", which is a kind of chard/apple tart. And while
    each one has been good in its own way (not so much that tart thing,
    though), I want something new to do with them.

    Anybody out there have an unusual and tasty way of preparing any of them?

    The most obvious way to prepare leafy greens is stuffed, a la cabbage
    rolls, dolmas, etc. There are dozens of stuffed leafy greens recipes
    on line but this one is so simple even a baboon assface keyboard kook
    can fake it:

    No where near as unusual as the suggestion of a green smoothie, Sautéed Kale
    with Smoked Paprika is the recipe I go to when I'm tired of greens in the
    usual ways. Or, perhaps an alternate kind of greens (radish) will suit;
    see below for Roasted Radishes with Radish Greens; the radishes with greens
    looked especially good at the supermarket yesterday, so I'll be preparing
    this recipe tonight.

    The rest all looks good-- but am I the only one who eats the entire
    bunch of kale? I chop the stems and ribs and steam separately as
    they take longer-- but the flavor is just as good, and I like the
    texture.

    All pretty good suggestions; thanks. That last one caught my attention
    because the serving size must be pretty huge; it says 4-6 servings from
    4 pounds of boneless pork and two bunches mustard greens. Maybe the
    bunches of mustard greens that I buy are bigger than what he gets, but
    that would easily fill two 13-by-9-inch baking pans.

    All those recipes use greens as wrappers, and while that's a decent
    idea, in order to use up a bunch of greens I'd have to make about a
    bushel of rolls. Still, they're handy notions for using up odds and
    ends, and I'm sure I'll make use of them sometime in the coming months.

    greens, because collards match especially well with smoky flavors.

    Recipe also saved: This *should* be a good time of year for radishes,
    but for some reason only black radishes are currently being prominently
    displayed at the farmers' markets. Do you supposed the recipe would work
    with black radishes? They're more like dry turnips than they are like
    normal radishes, so I think it *should* work. I'll see what the market
    has to offer this coming Tuesday.

    Yesterday, I tried a new Kale recipe that turned out great; it may be my new
    go-to kale recipe. I made it without any of the identified Optional

    5-Minute Steamed Kale with Mediterranean Dressing

    Recipe By :
    Serving Size : 2 Preparation Time :0:00
    Categories :

    Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    1 pound kale -- chopped
    Mediterranean Dressing:
    1 TBS lemon juice
    1 medium clove garlic -- pressed or chopped
    3 TBS extra virgin olive oil
    salt and black pepper to taste
    Optional:
    sliced onions -- steam with kale
    2 TBS sun dried tomatoes
    2 TBS sliced olives (kalamata)
    2 TBS feta cheese
    5 drops tamari soy sauce

    Chop garlic and let it sit for 5 minutes to enhance its health-promoting
    properties.

    Fill bottom of steamer with 2 inches of water and bring to boil.

    While water is coming to a boil, slice kale leaves into 1/2-inch slices, and
    cut again crosswise. Cut stems into 1/4-inch slices. Let kale sit for at
    least 5 minutes to bring out it health-promoting properties.

    When water comes to a boil, add kale (and onion if desired)to the steamer
    basket and cover. Steam for 5 minutes.

    Transfer to a bowl and toss with Mediterranean Dressing ingredients.
    Mediterranean Dressing does not have to be made separately. For the best
    flavor, toss with dressing while kale is still hot.

    Top with any/all of optional ingredients.

    Kale, too? At least they didn't have you tossing those stems. I
    chop mine into bite-sized and steam them separately-- but I see lots
    of recipes that say discard.

    I know they have to do that-- but those 'unknown items' could kill
    you.

    I did a massaged Kale salad last fall that was 'pretty good' -- the
    technique is worth looking for a better recipe, though. No cooking
    involved. you literally massage the kale with an acid [lemon juice,
    cider, etc]

    I like kale because it tastes good-- I didn't know it was 'health
    food'.

    If you want to devour a mess of kale easily, chips will do the job --
    delicious and very addictive. Dried or not and added to bread or
    tortilla dough/masa also is a good way to use up a quantity.

    First I'd heard of that too; maybe only Whole Foods (recipe source) shoppers

    Yeah, first time I ever actually used the stems; I usually toss them. They
    steamed just fine and, though not as tender as the leafy part, they offered
    a nice texture contrast.

    I did watch V, but the v in the post was the result of too much text in a

    I made a big pot of cauliflower mash and I had some leftovers. I
    decided to wash and chop some kale leaves and saute them with a bit of
    butter salt and pepper. I put a lid on the skillet and let them
    steam on low for about 5 minutes. Then I mixed in the cauliflower
    mash and let it heat through in the skillet.

    It was delicious. A twist on colcannon. Very tasty.

    It's a low carb favorite. It's a member of the cabbage family so it is
    high in most vitamins. It's closer to the original wild ancestor than
    its highly modified cousins like cauliflower and kohlrabi so it's lower
    in carbs even among the cabbage family. As a result its vitamin per
    calorie or vitamin per carb gram ratio is among the highest of any food.
    Kale is a nutritional rock star because of that.

    Another nutritional rock star mentioned here is garlic. Small enough to
    have a tiny calorie or carb count but jam packed with antioxidants.

    Kale is probably my single most favourite vegetable!
    Especially Tuscan Kale...

    I steam it, cream it, bake it and eat it raw in salads.

    Kale seems to be getting popular these days. I've seen it in my
    refrigerator several times although, I've never made it. I recently had
    some choy sum that was either steamed or boiled. It was made in an
    unusual way - cooked in a bundle and then sliced so it forms a compact
    package that you eat in a very orderly way. I don't care much for
    veggies but the method was appealing and tasty.

    Sure is, and good to see IMO. I started using it about 6 or 7 years
    ago, when I was getting back into a healthier diet again (not that my
    existing diet was all that bad). Found it was high in antioxidants,
    etc. so that was my motivation to seek it out. Started growing it and
    haven't stopped since, it's a very easy vegetable to grow too. Even
    the frost improves it's flavour.

    Just seen it in there?

    Sounds interesting.
