We all experience cravings, right? The past few days my daughter has been craving dark leafy greens. Raw or cooked? It doesn’t matter; my eight-year old daughter loves eating dark leafy greens.
I’m an early riser (usually awake by 4:00 am — today I was awake at 2:30 am). After a few hours of work, I decided to make her some homemade hash browns. What began as hash browns turned into a completely different dish. By the time, I was through I had prepared a lightly sauteed vegetable dish. It was delicious, nutritious, and simple to make.
What’s in this dish? Kale, carrots, onion, tomato, carrots, ginger, curry, and a sprinkle of sea salt all make an appearance in this dish. The kale was especially tender since I’d picked them from our garden this morning. I’m happy that dark leafy greens can be planted/harvested during the cooler months. It means that my daughter and I eat fresh greens for most of the year.
It’s interesting to see how my daughters taste buds have developed (as she’s gotten older). If I’d have prepared this a few years ago, the added ginger and curry would have been too spicy for her, but now she quite enjoys the extra kick.
Because the kale leaves were huge, I used only about two leaves in the above dish. The rest has been set aside to include into a smoothie.
My daughters cravings for greens had been satisfied, and she went off to school happy that I’d remembered her request. I’ll eat greens anytime, but recently I’ve been craving a homemade pizza. I’m thinking about making one later today.
