Cooking Sweet Potato Leaves

Yes indeed, as those of you who have seen us recently at the farmstand or market know, you can indeed eat Sweet Potato leaves!  And per the notes in this week’s Stories from the Farm, they are also super nutritious.  Here are some tips for cooking them! Prepare sweet potato leaves by boiling, steaming or stir­ frying to preserve nutrients. While cooking vegetables leads to slight nutrient losses, heat also […]

Chard Gratin

We debuted this dish at a farm supper and concert five years ago, and it turned out to be quite a hit and remains one of our event standards.  Creamy chard steaming with sweet onions under a layer of bubbling, browning cheese…need I say more?

Hot and Fueled by Greens
