Collard Greens with Coconut Milk - Kwanzaa Recipes 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Long a staple of soul food, collard greens taste like a cross between cabbage and kale. The addition of coconut milk adds an exotic hint of intrigue to this Southern favourite.
Kwanzaa is a weeklong celebration held in the United States honoring universal African heritage and culture, marked by participants lighting a kinara (candle holder).[1] It is observed from December 26 to January 1 every year.
Kwanzaa consists of seven days of celebration, featuring activities such as candle-lighting and libations, and culminating in a feast and gift giving. It was created by Ron Karenga and was first celebrated from December 26, 1966 to January 1, 1967.
Many Christian African Americans who celebrate Kwanzaa do so in addition to observing Christmas.


Ingredients:
1 pound collard greens
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup light coconut milk or coconut milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 large tomato, seeded and chopped


Directions:
Wash collard greens well. Remove and discard stems; cut up leaves (should have about 14 cups).

Bring water to boiling in a large pan or Dutch oven. Add collard greens and onion. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. Drain well and return to pan.

Stir in coconut milk, salt, and pepper. Cool, uncovered, over medium-low heat for 10 minutes more or until slightly thickened. Stir in tomatoes; heat through. Serve immediately.

Wellness Tip
Sweet potatoes
Traditionally sweet potatoes are a winter vegetable; nowadays they're around all year on the shelves. Packed with antioxidants such as beta-carotene, they provide plenty of lasting energy being lower GI than regular potatoes. Add sweet potatoes to soups, curries or simply serve them mashed. Sweet potatoes go well with flavours like garlic and herbs.

Recipe
Salsa Summer Fresca
Category: Dips
Description: Tomatoes are best in the summer months. Although tomatoes are now available year-round, the truly wonderful qualities of tomatoes are the best when they are in season from July through September.
In the area of food and phytonutrient research, nothing has been hotter in the last several years than studies on the lycopene in tomatoes. This carotenoid found in tomatoes (and everything made from them) has been extensively studied for its antioxidant and cancer-preventing properties. The antioxidant function of lycopene-its ability to help protect cells and other structures in the body from oxygen damage-has been linked in human research to the protection of DNA (our genetic material) inside of white blood cells.
Prevention of heart disease, Colon Health, and in Prostate Health has been shown to be another antioxidant role played by lycopene.
Tomatoes have been shown to be helpful in reducing the risk of prostate cancer.
With fresh ingredients, salsa has the perfect combination of spicy and refreshing tastes. Paired with some chips or added to a wrap, salsa is a great, healthy snack.
