Baked Greens and Feta Balls


I put this under kale, but you can use any kind of greens you want in it. When we made it last we used it as a "clean out the fridge" recipe adding chopped radish greens, kale, spinach and chard. Really good as an appetizer or interesting veggie side!

Vegetable Pancakes


This recipe is so flexible. You can use any kind of greens you have on hand and it was originally for cabbage. Soooo good! I like to shred the veggies ahead of time and keep in the fridge. Then right before eating, mix in the other stuff and fry. Definitely check out the sauce, too!

Stewed Kale with Dried Beans


I didn't specify what kind of beans because you can use any kind of dried beans that you like.  I used Yellow Eye which I personally like and make a creamy stew when they start to fall apart, but you could use other kinds, too.  Also, this recipe is so totally flexible.  Feel free to substitute any of the veggies for ones you have on hand and it will still be good!  :)

Massaged Kale Basic Recipe


Here is the basic how-to on making a massaged kale salad.  You can add any number of other things to embellish this salad like grated carrots, chopped radishes, lettuce, raisins, nuts, sesame seeds, etc, etc.  We grow a type of kale that is particularly tender called Russian kale which is the BEST for eating raw.  Try it!

1 bunch kale, tough midribs removed and sliced thinly
salad dressing of your choice or this homemade one:
1/4 cup oil
1 tablespoon vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

Fried Rice with Greens and Garlic Scapes


I have kale and pac choi listed here as the greens for this recipe.  But, it will be wonderful with any type of greens that you have on hand: spinach, swiss chard, etc.  Use this recipe to branch out and get creative.
