Leafy greens are chock full of essential vitamins and nutrients—that’s a no-brainer—but you might be surprised by how tasty they can also be with some creative prep.
Loaded with fiber, collard greens are known for their cholesterol-lowering abilities. Raw collard green leaves can be chopped and tossed into salad with berries and creamy goat cheese to counter the slightly bitter taste of the leaves. Or chop the leaves, ribs and stems and sauté with onion, garlic and white wine and toss with pasta or ravioli. Also try blending into your favorite pesto or bean dip recipe.
