Southwest Black Bean, Corn, Quinoa, & Kale

This nutrient dense vegan dish is high in protein, high in fiber, and is gluten free. It is also very versatile and can be served warm or cold as a side dish or a main course. Raw kale is an acquired taste for some. The lemon juice in this recipe will help to tenderize the kale, but you can always steam the kale if you prefer a more wilted version. Enjoy!

Spinach and Kale Greek Yogurt Dip

This easy dip packs a lot of vegetables as well as flavor. I’ve noticed that some folks who are not fond of nutrient dense greens like spinach and kale will eat this dip with gusto. It is a great dip to prepare in advance of a party because the flavors blend nicely while it chills. I also like to keep some in my refrigerator to eat on crackers as a healthy snack alternative. Enjoy!
