Fending off druids - looking for your best recipes for kale, spinach, parsley and collard greens

AnneInMpls | Feb 11, 2007 04:54 PM

My mother called the other day and told me that she has "druids on her eyes." She meant drusen, which are precursors for incurable macular degeneration. (Big bummer.) Her doctor told her to eat a cup of dark green leafy vegetables every other day - he mentioned parsley, kale, spinach, and collard greens. I think turnip greens are also recommended.

I'm making her some Kale and White Bean soup tonight, am planning some spanakopita in a day or two, and will drop off some take-out tabouli salad later. But I'd love some other ideas - especially for collard greens and turnip greens, which I've never cooked.

And I'm planning to up my intake of these greens as well, in hopes that I can fend off the "druids" before it's too late. So lots of variety would be a good thing.

What are your favorite recipes for parsley, kale, spinach, and collard or turnip greens?

Thanks,
Anne
