Collard Greens with Freekeh

Well, the universe has chosen to remind me that I am not Superwoman and am all too human and breakable by providing me with an excruciating bout of sciatica.  This means no standing on my feet for more than a few minutes and trying to pick recipes for my husband to cook for us that I might be able to help with from a seated position.  Just because I am not mobile at the moment does not mean that I am going to give up eating seasonally and healthily.  Enter who might be my next food crush: Joshua McFadden and his book, “Six Seasons.”  This recipe, along with a couple hundred others are broken down seasonally with some delicious and inventive ingredients.  This one calls for freekeh, a roasted wheat grain with a lovely smokey flavor.  It is worth hunting down, but you could also use a medium grain bulgur or if gluten is an issue; cracked buckwheat groats.  Here’s hoping I’ll be vertical next time we speak.

Spicy Stir-Fried Collard Greens with Cabbage

Well folks, it is 2017; a new beginning, time of goal setting, for some, a time of reckoning. I think whether you set goals, resolutions, or nothing at all at the beginning of the new year; we can all agree that after a time of indulgence (especially,) we need to get our bodies back on track with some healthy green veggies. Luckily for us, this is a time when those hardy winter greens are in abundance and what a beautiful and flavorful recipe to showcase them. This recipe is quite versatile and can be done with all collards or switching the cabbage up with some spicy Asian greens or mustard greens for punch. If you are a teetotaler, use all broth and add a little lemon juice at the end, if veggie or vegan, use vegetable broth instead of chicken and if you do not like spice, reduce or eliminate the red pepper. See, one dish fits all. 😉
