Greens are rich in magnesium and essential vitamins like vitamins K, A and C.  Eaten several times a week or even daily will provide vitamins and minerals in a whole food form your body can easily assimilate.  Greens can be spinach, collards, turnip greens, mustard greens or a mix of any of these.  Greens are easy to cook and take minimal time and effort.

Here are 3 ways I enjoy greens in my diet.  Enjoy these recipes!

Greens and Beans

Sautee greens and onions in butter or natural bacon grease until wilted and onions are translucent.  Add 1 can of drained and rinsed black or pinto beans.  Cover, and cook until greens are done, about 15-20 minutes.

Greens and Black-eyed Peas

Sautee greens and onions in butter or natural bacon grease until wilted.  Add a can of drained and rinsed black-eyed peas.  Cook, covered for 15-20 minutes.  Serve on a bed of brown rice or quinoa.

A Crustless Quiche

Sautee the greens, cook any meat you want in the quiche, like sausage or bacon.  Spread the meat and greens in the bottom of a greased 9” pan.  Spread some shredded cheddar cheese on top of the meat and greens mixture.

In another bowl, mix 4 eggs with 1 ½ cups of cream or raw milk.  Add salt and pepper and pour over the meat mixture.  Bake at 375° for 30-45 minutes.

Check by inserting a knife in the middle of the quiche and if it comes out clean, like a pie, then it is ready to eat.  Enjoy your quiche warm or cold!

Greens are versatile and easy to cook with.  They are nutrient-dense, so it is easy to get many of your vitamins and minerals in each day with greens.
