Cooking Tip #4 – Cooking Greens

AMY GARDNER / March 29, 2016

The virtuous green, leafy vegetable.  We hear so much about it but, if you’re anything like me up until a few years ago, these behemoth-leafed
vegetables are daunting.  What exactly are you supposed to do with them anyway?.  Thanks to their increasing popularity and the
proliferation of internet recipes, you can now find endless recipes online simply by typing “greens” into your search engine.  Everything from green
smoothies to frittatas to kale chips will appear.   But don’t worry, you don’t need to invest in a dehydrator or Vitamix to reap the
benefits of greens..  In this video I demonstrate my favorite (and simple) way to prep
greens.  This is a staple on our dinner table and I hope it will be on yours as well.

AND, get this….  I was recently able to get both my kids to eat their greens by talking about how iron and other vitamins and minerals in these
powerful veggies will help make them stronger…. my son’s hoping to be able to lift a car after eating 100 servings.  Hey, who am I to squash
his ambition?

BONUS TIP:  You’ll notice in the video, I use a cast iron pan which adds even more iron to the dish!
