Curried Greens with Tomatoes 

Print Friendly 

Description:
This recipe calls for 1 pound spinach, kale, collards or beet greens (or mixture of all). When some people hear the word "greens", they immediately conjure up childhood memories of overcooked lumps of vegetation they were forced to eat and hated. But the vegetable section of the grocery or health store is a different world today, brimming with a variety of greens such as spinach, chard, kale, mustard, collards and bok choy that are tasty as well as excellent sources of vitamins and minerals. Iron, calcium and folic acid (an important B vitamin that helps prevent birth defects and offers protection from heart disease) are abundant in these leafy veggies.
Greens can have strong tastes, but we encourage you to experiment with varieties you've never tried or haven't had in a while. You'll be in for a pleasant surprise.


Ingredients:
1 pound spinach, kale, collards or beet greens (or mixture of all)
2 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
2-3 tablespoons curry powder
1 cup finely chopped tomatoes (fresh or canned)
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 tablespoon dark-brown sugar
1 tablespoon expeller-pressed canola oil or olive oil
1 cup onion, finely diced
3/4 pound brown potatoes, peeled and cubed
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro or parsley (optional)


Directions:
1. Wash and drain greens, removing any coarse stems and midribs. Cut into half-inch strips.

2. In a small bowl, mix together the garlic, curry powder, tomatoes, tomato paste and sugar.

3. Heat the oil in a skillet and sauté onion over medium-high heat until it begins to brown. Add the spice-and-tomato mixture, mix well, and cook for a few minutes.

4. Add the potatoes and 2 cups water.

5. Mix well, bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and cook for 10 minutes.

6. Add greens and cook for 10 minutes more, or until potatoes are done.

7. Correct seasoning to taste. Garnish with the chopped fresh cilantro or parsley if desired.

Wellness Tip
Low Fat Brownies
Bake sale coming up? Consider modifying your traditional brownie mix recipe a bit. You can omit the oil, double the water, use 2 egg whites in place of each egg, and add 1 tsp vanilla extract. Your brownies will remain moist and chewy; you'll save about 15 grams of fat per tablespoon of oil omitted, and reduce the cholesterol by removing the egg yolks. But don't forget, reduced fat doesn't mean calorie free; portion size still matters.

Pam's Tuscan Kale Salad
Category: Salads
Description: Kale has a history of being a pretty green vegetable that you would see on the side of a plate as a garnish, or hidden in a soup or stew. It has not been popular as a vegetable in its own right. However, kale is making a come back as a delicious food that people can't get enough of. Kale Salad and Kale Pasta are but two of the favorites in my family.

Let's look at the high nutritional value of kale. One cup of chopped kale has approximately 34 calories, 2 grams of protein, and more vitamin C than an orange! It is a rich source of iron and calcium. It is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids that are essential for brain health, and boosts heart health. It also contains Vitamin A, Vitamin K, and Folate. These carry powerful cancer protecting antioxidants.

Kale tends to have a bitter taste unless it is prepared correctly.Below is a recipe that tastes good.
