Our larges box today contains a variety of greens, along with a few late season tomatoes and capsicum. Winter is onion growing time, so it can be hard to find a nice one in the shops and they are nowhere to be found on the farm, so I've added shallots and garlic chives, which make a nice substitute for onions.
We've been making a lovely pie with the spinach, with eggs and cheese, in a puff pastry, served along side a green salad. It is sometimes hard to include a salad to our diets in winter, but a chance meeting with a friend, asking if we had any salad to sell, reminded me of the importance of eating greens with a vinagarette, before the main meal to help with digestion.I remember Costa explaining to us when he came to the farm for an episode of Garden Oddyssey, that it was also a very important part of the Greek diet. And who are we to argue with Costa?
So do you eat some greens before your meal?
