I have been scrambling for different ways to eat greens and/or sneak greens into meals outside of the regular salad. Don’t get me wrong — I love a good salad. I get lots of compliments on the big pretty salads that I pack in my work lunchbox. Those pretty little radishes this week were quite tasty.
However, I had no idea what to do with the kohlrabi greens. But, I knew just based on the fact that the veggie box had a HUGE stalk of greens on the kohlrabi last week that those dazzling emerald leafs were meant to eaten.
Turns out you can do lots of things with greens! Check this: Recipes for Greens. The possibilities are endless!
I chose to add the kohlrabi to a chicken teriyaki stir fry. The hubby and the boy didn’t fully complain. I also stuck in some turnips and green garlic on this one. The turnips were a little mushy but not bad.
I chopped up a whole bag of kale into the spring greens mix and just disguised it as salad. My husband didn’t mention noticing it so that’s a win.
Another bag of kale went into my version of the Olive Garden’s zuppa tuscano. Yum. My son actually loved this. LOVED IT. Can’t go wrong with Olive Garden soup and bread sticks. Nom nom.
