Greens
« on: April 22, 2010, 07:42:37 AM »
Specifically Collard Greens

Last Fall we didnt clean up the garden and left some stuff in the ground.
Notably Collard Greens.
One of the first green things to sprout up was some leaves off the Collard plants that were in the garden  :o

Figured, just let them go and see what happens.

We harvested them Tuesday (one plant started to show signs of going to seed)
Sauteed some onion and garlic and braised the Collards with some chicken stock.

These were the best Collard Greens we have both ever eaten.
Tender, sweet just really special.
Suffice to say I'll leave the plants in the garden next year too  ;D

You eat environmental activists?

I suppose that's one way of reducing their carbon footprint!  :D

EDIT seriously I'm fond of mustard greens done in more of an Indian style.  Coconut, cumin, coriander, fenugreek, chilies, garlic, ginger, etc.

Greens are awesome and really good for you. I prefer young Mustard greens with Asian but Collard for American for sure. More people should eat them.

And a Gumbo Z'Herbes is da bomb!  Collard greens, mustard greens, turnip greens, and any other greens you can think of (should always be an odd number of types of greens for good luck).

Making palak ka shorba tonight, a spinach soup, with naan, basmati, and daal.  We'll see how it turns out!

I love this stuff just for the language lessons. shorba = chorba  just noting all the similarities between languages is cool.
I make a mean blender soup - spinach and cream. :D

First results in...spinach soup, quite nice, and subtle...daal however is explosively spicy.  Good, but wow!   :o

What's the secret ingredient, or combo of ingredients for the explosive daal?
