Greens and Onion “Souffle”

This recipe is great for using up some more of those greens. It will work with your beet greens, radish greens, turnip greens or chard. I wouldn’t use the collards, they just need a little more cooking to be tender. An adaptation of a recipe from Rebecca Lang’s “Quick-Fix Southern: Homemade Hospitality in 30 Minutes or Less.” Greens and onions are such natural companions.

Cold Noodles with Fresh and Preserved Greens

Preserved mustard greens can be found canned at most Chinese markets but I’ve included a recipe for preserved greens that you could make with your collard greens. Yes, you’ll have to plan ahead of this dish, but you’ll have an interesting way to use up some of your collards.

Try your romaine lettuce in this dish, or the tender radish and beet greens. Or the cabbage! Or use the kale and cook the greens a little longer than called for here.

Garbanzo Beans and Hearty Greens

This is a recipe from Cooking Light magazine. Just the collards or beet greens. Either will work. You may want this dish longer in the last step, depending on how tender you want your greens.

No smoked paprika? It’ll be fine. But really – buy some the next time you’re at the market. It’s wonderful.
