What Can I Do With Big Bags of Greens?

By Tabitha Alterman


Tags: greens, cooking, recipes,

I keep getting big bags of greens in my CSA share, and I’m not sure what to do with them besides add them to salads. Can you help?

Cook ’em! Greens are actually pretty versatile, so there’s practically no end to the many ways you can enjoy them. If you enter “greens” into one of the many recipe databases online (Epicurious is my favorite), you’ll find tons of great ideas. But here’s a good place to start: Cooking Greens for Greens Haters. So eat ’em up this spring, and get ready to eat some more come fall!
