Now is the time to celebrate the dark side this winter and welcome these beautiful greens into your kitchen.</p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-standard"> <div class="field-label">Standard Image:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_standard" width="310" height="310" alt="" src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/dark_leafy_greens.jpg?1257346354" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_standard" width="310" height="310" alt="" src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/beet_green_310.jpg?1257347555" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_standard" width="310" height="310" alt="" src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/chard_310.jpg?1257363178" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_standard" width="310" height="310" alt="" src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/collard_310.jpg?1257363185" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_standard" width="310" height="310" alt="" src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/escarole_310.jpg?1257363192" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_standard" width="310" height="310" alt="" src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/kale_310.jpg?1257363198" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_standard" width="310" height="310" alt="" src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/mustard_310.jpg?1257363205" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-guide-item"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <h3>Beet Greens</h3> <p><img src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/beet_green_310.jpg" alt="beet greens" class="right" height="190" width="190" />Beets are the pagan symbol for love and beauty. Find beet greens still attached to the beets or separate in bunches. The color of the veins indicates the color of their root—the beet. Common varieties include red, gold and chioggia, an Italian heirloom variety that has concentric circles of white and pink, purple or red. Each beet has several greens growing from it. The greens have a rich, earthy flavor.</p> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <h3>Chard</h3> <p><img src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/chard_310.jpg" alt="chard" class="right" height="190" width="190" />Chard is not Swiss; in fact, the first varieties have been traced back to Sicily. Look for chard’s shiny ribbed leaves and the multicolored stems of the rainbow variety, the red-speckled leaves of red (or ruby) chard, or white chard’s white stems and veins. Some find white chard has the most mild taste—quite similar to spinach, in fact, and red chard to have a stronger, earthier flavor, like that of beets (chard is from the beet family).</p> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <h3>Collard Greens</h3> <p><img src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/collard_310.jpg" alt="collard greens" class="right" height="190" width="190" />Southerners traditionally serve collard greens on New Year’s Day, along with black-eyed peas, to ensure wealth in the coming year. You can spot collards by their flat, broad leaves. While many other greens wilt down when cooked, collards keep most of their volume. Perhaps the most neutral in taste, they benefit from other big flavors in a dish.</p> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <h3>Escarole</h3> <p><img src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/escarole_310.jpg" alt="escarole" class="right" height="190" width="190" />A type of chicory (whose botanical name, cichorium intybus, means “January plant”), escarole has tender, broad, pale green leaves that can be eaten raw in salads or lightly cooked in soups, pasta or as a side dish. Seek out escarole near other lettuces in your supermarket. Balance its bitter flavor with a touch of sweetness—think chunks of apple in a salad or dried fruit in a sauté.</p> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <h3>Kale</h3> <p><img src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/kale_310.jpg" alt="kale" class="right" height="190" width="190" />Social clubs in northwestern Germany take “kale tours” in January, visiting country inns to consume large quantities of kale, sausage and schnapps. Popular varieties include red Russian, lacinato (or dinosaur) and curly kale (which can range from green to deep purple). Kale’s sharp, peppery flavor is best balanced by a touch of acidity or sweetness.</p> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <h3>Mustard Greens</h3> <p><img src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/mustard_310.jpg" alt="mustard greens" class="right" height="190" width="190" />These pungent, peppery greens are popular around the globe, showing up in everything from Southern soul food to Asian stir-fries. Identify them by their frilly edges. Their flavor is bold so you may want to combine them with other more mild dark leafy greens, like chard, to balance their strong flavor.</p> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <h3>Dealing with Dark Leafy Greens</h3> <p>Most winter greens are sold in bunches—the exception is escarole, which grows in a lettucelike head. Look for fresh, crisp, brightly colored greens; avoid those that are wilted or blemished. Wash greens well as dirt likes to hide in their nooks and crannies. Fill your sink with lots of cold water and let them soak for a bit, give them a swish, then dry them in a salad spinner. Though all of the stems are edible, we prefer to use only chard and beet stems, discarding the tough stems of collards, kale and mustard greens. If you do choose to use the stems, keep them separate when prepping and cook them for 3 to 5 minutes longer than the leaves.</p> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-related-group-1"><legend>Related Content Group 1</legend><div class="field field-type-text field-field-relatedtitle1"> <div class="field-label">Related Content Title 1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Related Recipes </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-relatedlinks1"> <div class="field-label">Related Links 1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/recipes/linguine_with_escarole_shrimp.html">Linguine with Escarole &amp; Shrimp</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/recipes/kale_sausage_lentil_skillet_supper.html">Kale, Sausage &amp; Lentil Skillet Supper</a> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/recipes/mustard_greens_bulgur.html">Mustard Greens &amp; Bulgur</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/recipes/collard_green_black_eyed_pea_soup.html">Collard Green &amp; Black-Eyed Pea Soup</a> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/recipes/roasted_beet_crostini.html">Roasted Beet Crostini</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/recipes/chard_feta_tart.html">Chard &amp; Feta Tart</a> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/recipes_menus/collections/healthy_winter_greens_recipes">Healthy Winter Greens Recipes and Cooking Tips</a> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> http://www.eatingwell.com/healthy_cooking/healthy_cooking_101/shopping_cooking_guides/winter_greens_buyers_guide#comments Carolyn Malcoun Shopping Guides Healthy Cooking - Healthy Cooking 101: Basics & Techniques Wed, 04 Nov 2009 14:47:00 +0000 Penelope Wall 15209 at http://www.eatingwell.com 2009 Holiday Cookie Contest Winning Recipes http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes_menus/recipe_slideshows/winning_holiday_cookies_slideshow <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes_menus/recipe_slideshows/winning_holiday_cookies_slideshow" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/2009_Holiday_Cookie_Contest_Winning_Recipes.jpg" alt="2009 Holiday Cookie Contest Winning Recipes Featured Recipe Slideshow Image" title="2009 Holiday Cookie Contest Winning Recipes Featured Recipe Slideshow Image" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div>We tested and tasted hundreds of cookies to find 6 winners worthy of passing down through the generations.

Whether you grow your own or buy them at the farmers’ market, enjoy green beans&#039; incomparable flavor. &lt;strong&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.eatingwell.com/free_downloads/healthy_vegetable_side_dish_recipes&quot;&gt;Download a FREE Healthy Vegetable Side Dish Recipe Cookbook!&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/strong&gt; </div> <div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/lemon_dill_green_beans.html' target='_blank'>Lemon-Dill Green Beans</a></div><div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/braised_green_beans_summer_vegetables.html' target='_blank'>Braised Green Beans &amp; Summer Vegetables</a></div><div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/blue_cheese_walnut_green_beans.html' target='_blank'>Blue Cheese-Walnut Green Beans</a></div><div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/green_beans_with_creamy_garlic_dressing.html' target='_blank'>Green Beans with Creamy Garlic Dressing</a></div><div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/creamy_green_beans.html' target='_blank'>Creamy Green Beans</a></div><div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/paprika_shrimp_green_bean_saute.html' target='_blank'>Paprika Shrimp &amp; Green Bean Saute</a></div><div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/asian_green_bean_stir_fry.html' target='_blank'>Asian Green Bean Stir-Fry</a></div><div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/sauteed_green_beans_cherry_tomatoes.html' target='_blank'>Sauteed Green Beans &amp; Cherry Tomatoes</a></div><div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/green_bean_salad_with_corn_basil_black_olives.html' target='_blank'>Green Bean Salad with Corn, Basil &amp; Black Olives</a></div><div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/packet_roasted_balsamic_green_beans_peppers.html' target='_blank'>Packet-Roasted Balsamic Green Beans &amp; Peppers</a></div><div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/orange_scented_green_beans_with_toasted_almonds.html' target='_blank'>Orange-Scented Green Beans with Toasted Almonds</a></div><div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/garlicky_green_beans.html' target='_blank'>Garlicky Green Beans</a></div><div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/sizzled_green_beans_with_crispy_prosciutto_pine_nuts.html' target='_blank'>Sizzled Green Beans with Crispy Prosciutto &amp; Pine Nuts</a></div><div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/green_beans_with_bacon_hazelnuts.html' target='_blank'>Green Beans with Bacon &amp; Hazelnuts</a></div><div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/string_beans_summer_squash.html' target='_blank'>String Beans &amp; Summer Squash</a></div><div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/stir_fried_string_beans.html' target='_blank'>Spicy Stir-Fried String Beans</a></div><div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/mushroom_bean_salad.html' target='_blank'>Mushroom &amp; String Bean Salad</a></div><div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/grilled_green_beans.html' target='_blank'>Grilled Green Beans with Horseradish Ketchup</a></div><div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/smothered_green_beans.html' target='_blank'>Smothered Green Beans with New Potatoes</a></div><div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/sweet_sour_green_beans.html' target='_blank'>Sweet &amp; Sour Green Beans</a></div><div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/meatless_green_beans_potatoes.html' target='_blank'>Meatless Mountain Green Beans with Potatoes</a></div><div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/wilted_green_bean_salad.html' target='_blank'>Wilted Green Bean Salad </a></div><div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/green_bean_tomato_salad.html' target='_blank'>Green Bean &amp; Tommy-Toe Salad</a></div><div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/sunny_side_beans.html' target='_blank'>Sunny-Side Beans</a></div><div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/three_sisters_succotash.html' target='_blank'>Three Sisters Succotash</a></div><div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/ginger_bean_chow_chow.html' target='_blank'>Ginger Bean Chow-Chow</a></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes_menus/recipe_slideshows/fresh_recipes_for_green_beans#comments Carolyn Malcoun Recipes & Menus - Recipe Slideshows Recipes & Menus - Fresh Mon, 24 Aug 2009 16:29:09 +0000 Sarah Hoff 10322 at http://www.eatingwell.com Easy Sweet Corn Recipes http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes_menus/recipe_slideshows/easy_sweet_corn_recipes <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes_menus/recipe_slideshows/easy_sweet_corn_recipes" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/4_Easy_Sweet_Corn_Recipes.JPG" alt="Easy Sweet Corn Recipes Featured Recipe Slideshow Image" title="Easy Sweet Corn Recipes Featured Recipe Slideshow Image" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div>While nothing quite beats eating quickly boiled or grilled corn on the cob with butter dribbling down your chin, taking a slightly exotic approach can be nice too. So get shucking—while corn is available year-round, your local farmstand’s got it fresh from the field right now. How healthy is corn? 1 cup of fresh sweet corn kernels (about 1 large ear) has 4 grams of fiber, plus it’s rich in lutein and zeaxanthin, compounds that help keep your eyes healthy as you age. &lt;strong&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.eatingwell.com/free_downloads/healthy_vegetable_side_dish_recipes&quot;&gt;Download a FREE Healthy Vegetable Side Dish Recipe Cookbook!&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/strong&gt;</div> <div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/mexican_grilled_corn.html' target='_blank'>Mexican Grilled Corn</a></div><div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/coconut_creamed_corn.html' target='_blank'>Coconut Creamed Corn</a></div><div><a href='http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/corn_with_bacon_mushrooms.html' target='_blank'>Corn with Bacon &amp;
