Recipe: Cashew and Greens Snack Bowl

This is a great way to get your dark leafy greens in, and also a healthy snack with plenty of energy to keep you going. All you need is a few ingredients, a pan, and a spoon!

Collard Greens is scored as one of the best foods on the Aggregate Nutrient Density Index (ANDI), giving you the most nutrients per calorie! Healthy oils and fats (organic butter and cheddar cheese : P) help you absorb all those minerals, nutrients, and proteins (cashew nuts). Certain herbs aid in digestion, have calming properties, and are anti-microbial and anti-bacterial. This is meant to be a synergistic recipe, satisfying your taste buds and body.

Ingredients (Serves 2):

  • 3-4 collard green leaves
  • a few sprigs of thyme (or any herb to your liking)
  • a couple cloves of garlic (more if you like!)
  • 1 cup spring peas (if using frozen peas, make sure to defrost first)
  • 1/4 cup cashews
  • 1.5 tbsp of butter, extra virgin olive oil, or any virgin/cold pressed oils
  • Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) or white wine
  • couple of slices of white cheddar (optional)

Sautée the roughly chopped cashew nuts, the thin slices of garlic, and thyme in the oil/butter over medium heat until the nuts just change colour.

Add the collard green stems (cut in 1/2 in pieces) and sautée for a bit. Add the rest of the chopped collard greens and fresh peas, a splash of ACV or white wine and cook until the collard greens are tender. The cashews are slightly crispy, veggies tender, savoury, and full of healthy nutrients. Serve immediately ; ).
