greens

A guy I follow on Twitter is doing a couple of polls about greens (the things you eat, not the members of the political party... I mean if you're a cannibal that distinction might not be valid but I suspect for most of you it is, plus--no capitalization!)

Here is a link.

For those of you as click-averse as I am, there are two groups of greens:

First group:

chard
collards
kale
spinach

Second group:

beet greens
cress
mustard greens
turnip greens

You have to choose your favorite for cooking in each group. (You can go vote if you want--it will add a new dimension to his polling base.)

So .... do you all have favorites? Opinions? Beloved recipes? I cook spinach, kale, and beet greens; I have cooked mustard greens now and then, and sometimes chard. I did not know you could *eat* turnip greens--it's an exciting new piece of information.

Yes! We eat turnip greens with vinegar and salt, like most greens I guess. Beets are also closely related to Swiss Chard (not on the list) which develops a beet-like root in another colour like yellow or pink, lots of people don't know that one either.

Mmmm, I am going to cook turnip greens one day.

I think maybe Swiss chard could fall under the general "chard" category (first group)?

Glossed over that in my excitement over greens, oops.

also peanut butter greens, with kale or chard.

I put spinach in my smoothies.

I love collards with pepper vinegar.

Looks like group 1 for me :)

Mmmm, I like the idea of a peanut butter sauce for greens!
