Never has there been a better time of year then around St. Patrick's day to sneak in some greens to everyday favorites and use the holiday as an excuse. Just tell them its a secret ingredient from the Leprechaun's! :)
- Add frozen chopped spinach to dumplings or biscuits. Adding a couple teaspoons of Parmesan cheese takes the edge off any "green" taste they might notice.
- Add grated zucchini to cupcakes, muffins, or cakes.
- Steam and chop up kale, radish, or mustard greens and add to soups, rice, or other grains.
- Consider brussel sprouts instead of the traditional cabbage with your corned beef. They have a sweeter taste when cooked with carrots and onions, and a higher nutritional value.
Have a great holiday weekend!
