A New Kale Recipe

This dish is similar to saag, the delicious Indian dish made with spinach.

The ingredients are:
4 cups of water
4 pounds of leafy greens such as kale, collards or even red swish chard (I use any leafy greens)
2 large carrots
2 large pieces of celery
other vegetables on hand and in season. I have used yellow squash, zucchini, broccoli and even Jerusalem artichokes and a radish

4 tbsp Ancient Organics ghee
1 small yellow onion
1 inch piece of fresh yellow ginger
1 clove of garlic

3 tsp cumin seeds
3 tsp turmeric (ground)
1/4 tsp fenugreek
1/2 tsp fennel seeds
1 tsp black pepper (ground)
pinch of hing
1/4 tsp nutmeg (optional)
1-3 tbsp coconut flakes
6 tsp sucanat or other natural sugar (not honey!)
3-4 tsp sea salt or natural mineral salt

wash the greens and add to the boiling water in a large pot
chop the other vegetables and add to the same pot; cover with a lid
