‘A mess o’ greens' is what southerners from the USA call this dish. These greens are a nutritionist's dream, because they're brimming with betacarotene, vitamin C, potassium and calcium.
Serve with marinated tomatoes and a wedge of hot corn bread. * Mix and match greens for the best look and flavour. They all work well together, so you can't go wrong. Wash them well, then trim away any woody, hard parts.
Eat your greens – and get your calcium! Many of the dark leafy greens, such as silverbeet, are a first-class source of calcium, known for building and maintaining strong bones and teeth. Calcium is also instrumental in transmitting nerve impulses and regulating heart rhythm. It plays a part in keeping the blood healthy too, by aiding in clotting the blood and helping the body absorb vitamin B12 (vital in making red blood cells). Greens also contribute an excellent amount of betacarotene, vitamin C and potassium.
