This is interesting because you wouldn’t think you can eat your leafy greens wrong. Lots of people hate them so you’d think eating them at all would be a good thing. It is, of course, but there is apparently a right way to do so. Since leafy greens are hugely healthy you should learn as much about this as you can.
- Come winter and everyone digs gleefully into sarson ka saag. And I haven’t yet met anyone who doesn’t like palak paneer either! Both these leafy greens are mainstays of most home menus.
- don’t overcook the turnip greens as that can decrease their total chlorophyll content, and their overall antioxidant capacity. So cook till just done, not squishy done.
- Add them to the sarson ka saag when you are making it, chop them fine add to soups and pastas, or just sauté and toss in some olive oil and garlic for a healthy side dish.
