My toddler's favorite morning milk shake. vzgggg!

Persian Greens, Herbs and Eggs - Kookoo Sabzee

This is a staple in our vegetarian home. It's also a super healthy dish that I always know my 2 yr old will eat. The recipe below is basic. Normally, you would have more herbs. I usually use a mix of whatever herbs and greens I have on hand - parsely (fresh), mint (fresh or dry), chives, collards, kale, even dandelion greens from my lawn. Just be careful with too much kale or dandelions, as it can make it bitter. This dish is great cold the next day also and is traditionally served with dairy - goat's cheese, sour yoghurt, feta, etc.

Beet Puree spread

From Madhur Jaffrey's "World Vegetarian" Cookbook with my modifications (no oil and pomengranate concentrate instead of red wine vinegar

Cauliflower Fritters, Indian style

This recipe is from Madhur Jaffrey's "World Vegetarian" Cookbook and uses chickpea flour for the breading. They're supposed to be deep fried, but I fry them in the pan with a thin layer of oil.

Horta - Greens prepared Greek style

This is one of my favorite recipes for preparing fresh greens - beet greens, mustard greens, chard, collards, what have you. It is simple and delicious - and really nutritious - as long as you incorporate all the water from cooking the greens back into the dish.
