More ways with winter greens

  1. Make pesto: In a food processor, whirl together a few handfuls of any leafy green with some lemon juice, garlic, salt, olive oil and nuts. Serve on pasta, pizza, in egg dishes or as a sandwich spread. And it freezes beautifully, so make a big batch.
  2. Make chips: Chard as well as kale make flavorful and healthy chips. Follow this basic recipe for either green.
  3. Toss into soup: When making veggie or bean soups, stir in a couple of handfuls of thinly sliced hearty greens at the end for extra flavor and color.
  4. Add to pasta or grain salads: Avoid too many noodles and bland flavor by chopping up a variety of greens and tossing them into your favorite pasta or grain dish.
  5. Fold into a frittata or omelet: Use the basic sauté method for your choice of greens and add to eggs for an extra nutritional punch in the morning.
  6. Top a pizza: Sauté kale, pancetta, red onion and chèvre — delizioso!
  7. Boost your smoothie: Hearty greens undoubtedly add the most nutrition to juices and smoothies. Balance the flavor with apples, pears or bananas, a squeeze of lemon juice and a bit of freshly grated ginger.
