January Eat Your Greens Round Up

January has been a quiet month with Eat Your Greens contributions and I wonder if its because of January Blues, but I think its a state of mind and don't think we should the approach the New Year that way, but with some kind of optimism and hope.

So onto Eat Your Greens, even though it has been quiet, I think many people have been like me, they have been eating greens, but its mostly been served as a side or an addition on the plate, rather than a star.   Still its better than no greens at all.
The first recipe for Gnocchi with Pesto and Asparagus comes from Johanna of Green Gourmet Giraffe. Here we have some good looking crispy fried gnocchi with a good asparagus from the farmers market and herbs from her garden.  All that asparagus - its the kind of lunch my husband would love. 
Next we have Emily from Cooking For Kishore with Potato, Leek and Kale Soup. Emily writes this is a great quick warming soup, full of root veggies and textual dark green kale in a delicious rich broth.   

My co-host the Veg Hog shared a warming Green Broth.  This GreenBroth is made with Pak Choi leaves, Thai spices and coconut milk.  The VegHog writes if you want to make a more substantial dish, you could add some noodles, fried tofu or tempeh to this recipe
And finally my own contribution is this Spelt Beetroot Salad with Spinach

Thank you to all the contributors for taking time to share their recipes with #EatYourGreens recipes.  Now please to on over to The Veg Hog who will be hosting #EatYourGreens challenge in February - the month of love.  Please Follow this link on how to join in if your new. 


  1. Yes greens are so easy to have on the side because they often keep their colour better that way than in a main dish but you always inspire me to do more main dish greens with this event!

  2. It might have been a quiet month, but all recipes were wonderful. Sometimes it's more about the quality and not quantity. :) Thanks for hosting in January, I will now call for February recipes.

    1. I totally agree. Thanks VegHog. Look forward to February Greens!
