DARK LEAFY GREENS RECIPES

Okay, okay, we get it: Dark leafy greens are really good for us and we need to incorporate them into our diet. But how to make them really delicious? Or get the kids to eat them? Our contest with Food52 produced hundreds of fantastic recipes. We announced the finalists last week, but felt we had to run all of our tops. Who knew how inventive our submissions could get! Special thanks to Amanda and Merrill for Food52 x goop, one of my favorite collaborations ever.

Crispy Coconut Kale with Roasted Salmon

Crispy Coconut Kale with Roasted Salmon

We’re into the coconut, sesame, sriracha combination on the salmon and kale. We also love anything that can be cooked in one pan. We omitted the sweet potatoes, as we found the rice was an ideal amount of starch.

Moroccan Beet Greens

Moroccan Beet Greens

With just a few aromatics and spices, this recipe enhances the flavor of the beet greens’ without overwhelming them. Cooking them with a little bit of water, as instructed here, leaves them perfectly soft.

Kale, White Bean & Sweet Potato Korma

Kale, White Bean & Sweet Potato Korma

This is a rich, hearty vegan stew that’s easy and quick to make for a weeknight dinner. We like heat, so we added a pinch of red chili flakes to the coconut oil to simmer with the onions.
