I love to make Kale chips. You just tear them into pieces, drizzle on a tiny bit of oil and a sprinkle of salt and bake them at 350*F for about 10 mins. (You want to use a silicone baking sheet or parchment paper so that they don't stick.
I also love swiss chard, it is super easy to grow and looks really cool. The ribs of the leaf can be bright pink, maroon, yellow, or white and look really pretty which makes eating it more fun. Plus it is still of nutrients and can be eaten raw or cooked.
I also love broccoli in just about any form and put it in everything I can. My hamburgers the other night even had finely chopped broccoli in them.
I also like baked cabbage. You just lightly blanch thin strips of it, drain, then bake covered at 390*F for 50 mins with a bit of ham, caraway, molasses, Worcestershire, and a bit of broth. It is low calorie, filling, and yummy.
Also, although not the healthiest, I like friend Romain lettuce hearts. You slice them in half and cook them on the stove in a drizzle of olive oil until lightly brown. Then just serve them up with a bit of salt. They are a great side to go with steak.
