Two new recipes for greens from member Lisa Beddow-Weeks, who says even her 10 year old son likes 'em when they're prepared this way! Thanks Lisa!
1 cup purchased pesto (homemade when we start getting basil!)
3 cups mixed greens (kale, chard, spinach, or asian greens), chopped
1/2 - 1 lb. tofu
6 - 10 garlic cloves (optional)
In a food processor, blend garlic, tofu and pesto until smooth. Add
greens and blend again until smooth. Great on pasta or as a dip. Keeps
in the fridge about one week.
Green Rice Stir-fry
(serves 2 or more?)
2 cups cooked brown rice
1 tbsp. olive oil
2 heads of green garlic, chopped
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 - 2 heads of broccoli, chopped
3 cups mixed greens, chopped
3-4 splashes of rice wine or dill vinegar
1 tbsp. sweet soy sauce (found at Asian markets, thick like catsup) or Hoisin sauce
In wok or large non-stick fry pan, saute garlic in oil over med. heat 'til golden. Add broccoli. Saute 2-3 min. Add greens & saute 'til wilted. Add vinegar. Stir well to mix. Add rice and stir all together until rice is heated through. Drizzle sweet soy over all, mix together and serve!
