It’s the time for greens again. Beautiful healthy kale, collards, swiss chard, purslane, and more. Greens grow well in the summer but they thrive in the fall. Greens love the cool temperatures, their flavor even gets sweeter with a frost. Leafy greens are full of nutrition and should be part of your regular diet.
I enjoy them for breakfast with my home fries or in a smoothie. They make a great addition to a lunchtime soup. I’m obsessed with kale chips, they are my go to snack. For dinner the possibilities are endless, one of my favorites, is to finely chop up the greens and throw them on top of a pizza as soon as it comes out of the oven. The heat from the pizza wilts the greens and its delicious.
