Veggie “Fettuccine”

Ingredients in order of use:

1 bunch broccoli florets

3 curly kale leaves, stems removed

2 medium carrots

1 yellow summer squash

1 zucchini


Sauce:
1⁄2 cup hulled hemp seeds

1 tbsp chopped oregano

1 tsp chopped ginger

2 tbsp olive oil

1⁄4 tsp Himalayan salt

1/3 cup water


Sauce: Add all ingredients except water in a blender or food processor. Gradually add water until desired consistency is reached.

Steam broccoli until tender, about 5-6 minutes, and chop into small pieces. Shred kale by slicing into thin pieces, steam 3-4 minutes, until dark green and tender. Using a veggie peeler, thinly slice the carrots, zucchini and summer squash so they resemble pasta, or fettuccine noodles. Steam together for about 4 minutes. Mix the kale and broccoli to create a bed for the rest of the veggies. Drizzle sauce on top.

    Stir-Fried Greens & Asparagus

    Ingredients in order of use:

    6 cups collard greens, sliced into ribbons 

    1 tbsp olive oil

    1⁄2 tsp cumin seeds (or 1 tsp cumin powder)

    1⁄2 tsp coriander

    1⁄2 tsp turmeric

    1⁄2 bunch of asparagus, tough ends trimmed off & cut in 1” pieces

    1 tbsp water

    For collard ribbons: Use a sharp knife to carefully trim the stem from each leaf. Discard stems, wash and dry the leaves. Stack half the leaves and roll them up tightly crosswise into a cigar shape. Cut the rolled greens crosswise into 1⁄4 inch thick slices (ribbons). Repeat with the remaining leaves.

    Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat and add cumin. When cumin is fragrant and a shade darker, add the coriander and turmeric, and sauté
    for a few seconds. Add the asparagus and sauté for 3 minutes. Add the collard greens, water and a sprinkle of Himalayan salt. Sauté greens, stirring 
    frequently until tender, about 2-3 minutes. Taste and add more salt if needed.
