Greens. Greens. Greens. Gimme all the greens.
Greens are a staple to many cuisines throughout the world. But, I feel like much of America is lacking in traditional greens dishes. Sure the South has their beloved slow cooked collards, but no other significant dish comes to mind. Am I just blanking here? Please let me know of any you can think of in the comments!
I fell in love with the spicy stewed callaloo (aka amaranth) greens of Jamaica when we lived their in the winter months on and off for a few years. The spicy flavor and heat comes from the addition of scotch bonnet or heirloom habanero peppers. We eat this dish often, substituting callaloo with the hearty greens available here like kale, chard and collards.
I would love to see your creations! Remember to tag your photos of my recipes with #fareislerecipe on instagram so I can see them!
