If asked what food we need a lot more of, I would say GREENS!!! We should be eating them every single day. Packed with mega-loads of Vitamin K, A, and Vitamin C, greens & non-starchy veggies such as mushrooms and green beans combine well with lemons, limes, and tomatoes. Collard greens are also super low in calories and contain NO cholesterol. The leaves and stems are high in minerals like iron, calcium, copper, manganese, selenium and zinc. In general, greens help the body with the digestion of proteins and starches of which we eat plenty.
You will need:
a large hand full of green beans
1 bunch of collard greens
1/2 yellow onion sliced long ways (or shallots)
a little fresh parsley
a little fresh mint
juice from one lime
3 TBSPs of wheat-free soy tamari sauce (located in most health food stores)
1/2 cup of water or veggie broth (if you have it)
paprika, ground black pepper, or cayenne to taste
1) a large mixing bowl 2) a medium saucepan 3) tongs
PREP it UP!
COOK it UP!
A great dish for any time of day … or Serve with garlic mash potatoes and BBQ lentils. Oh yes, I need to upload my BBQ lentils recipe…will do this soon. Happy Weekend!!
SHOPPING NOTE: Share your fresh herbs e.g. mint and parsley with your friends, family, and neighbors so as not to waste.
