Curried Mustard Greens with Kidney Beans
really really yummy! DO NOT BOIL THE GREENS! it makes them loose a lot of their nutrients. And keep the stems! they will soften but actually have more nutrients than leaves. I mixed it all (except the greens) together after cooking shallots and then placed the layer of chopped greens over the top and slowly worked it in as it wilted, which didn't take long. I would also choose a different bean - something softer. Made the following subs for doubled recipe: >coconut milk for half and half >one can of diced tomatoes and one sauce (rather than 2 sauce) >ginger powder for fresh (couldn't find in store) I put it over rice but that reduced the nice strong flavors... I would prefer adding some veg stock and having it as a stew. Was surprisingly easy and so good!!

Mashed Kohlrabi and Red Potato Bake
I STEAMED the potatoes (skins on = more nutrients) and kohlrabi ( the latter being in much smaller pieces so that it cooked faster reading that it takes longer) because steaming helps RETAIN MORE NUTRIENTS than boiling. I also FINELY CHOPPED THE KOHLRABI LEAVES (stems removed) because they have significantly MORE NUTRIENTS than the bulb itself. After cooking the potatoes and kohlrabi I added the leaves with the potatoes and kohlrabi pieces to the blender (easier than mashing or food processor - I have an unusual blender…). Blended it all together with a tablespoon of MELT, put it in agreased little crock dish, covered with a little layer of fresh chopped parsley and then spread over that a layer of shredded pepper jack (just what I had on hand but could easily be a multitude of cheese options, or something vegan - will ponder that..) and baked for a bit till the cheese had a brown light crisp - about 425 for 15 mins. Added a little salt to taste in my bowl and was AMAZING!! It was the first time I've even done anything with kohlrabi so it was a great experience. I plan on tweaking this to be vegan to take to Thanksgiving for me and my uncle and his gf. :) STEAM!!! ADD CHOPPED LEAVES!!!

Blueberry and Chia Quinoa
I made substituions of sweetened vanilla coconut milk instead of soy, added vanilla, and used mixed berries (black, blue, rasp, and straw). It was incredibly lacking in taste and sweetness. I added stevia to my bowl and that helped. I think the ratio of quinoa and chia to flavorings is off. I'd use either a far less amount of the seeds or a much much greater amount of berries, honey, and whatever to give this a little more punch. As for my house smelling like heaven, well, I couldn't smell anything until I got near the crockpot and it smelled very earthy - not like warm vanilla and berrie porridge. Again, a ratio thing, probably. has potential, but certainly not as as posted here.
