Felice Buon Nuovo! Happy New Year!
The year and decade have begun! Each January we make “
i buoni propositi
new year’s resolutions
. Have you made any resolutions for 2020? For us, we always seem to have the usual ones - exercise regularly, eat healthier, lose weight, learn something new. Who doesn't want to eat healthier?! We begin with seasonal greens and vegetables and they are a big part of our plate!
During this time of year in Italy the family gardens burst with a wide array of
winter vegetables from kale and chards to rapini (cimi di rape), broccoli, cauliflower
. The Tuscan black kale,
is a popular (and tastier) alternative to the curly leaf kale found everywhere (it seems). Lacinato is easily found in our supermarkets now and it is delicious as a side, in soups or on bruschetta.
Below are two recipes
for you to add a little healthy green to your meals this month.
