Curried Garlic Greens 

Print Friendly 

Description:
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
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 canola 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
VITAMIN D--BEST SOURCES
Vitamin D aids in the absorption of dietary calcium, which is essential for bone health. Very few foods naturally contain vitamin D. The major dietary sources of vitamin D in the U.S. are fortified products such as milk, some brands of orange juice and ready-to-eat cereals. The body also makes it after exposure to sunlight. If you feel you might not be getting enough vitamin D, or if you are thinking of taking a supplement, consult your physician or a dietitian.
