I haven't made any Beneficial Veggie Trio since we put our house on the market. Onions don't make the kitchen smell good, and kale is even worse. What I have been doing is mixing several of the beneficial beans from the Menopause book with frozen greens.
Some greens like spinach, Swiss chard, and beet greens are just delicious plain or with a little olive oil. Collard greens, turnip greens, and kale are good, but they are better when I add something to give them extra flavor. Seasoned salt is good, and chopped meat is good. But I really like mixing in a half cup of beans. Adzukis, northern beans, and black beans are all really good. I like the texture and the flavor. Even better is when I add left over beef or chicken to the beans and greens.
Very simple lunch, and very beneficial.
My toe is improving. I didn't think I could possibly survive if I slowed down, but the toe forced me to slow down, and the world did not come to an end.
