Cheap canned greens

Saturday, February 11, 2012

I was at Walmart today to check some prices and found canned turnip greens, canned collard greens, and canned mustard greens for 10 cents a can! Don't know if they'll be any good, but I figured it was worth taking a chance on and got 2 of each.

I plan to use them to make my Cream of Whatever Is Handy Soup. I usually make it with frozen spinach or frozen broccoli, but I'm going to try it with the canned greens. Here's the general recipe:

2 cups chicken broth or other broth
8 oz frozen veggies (or I'll use a can of greens)
1/4 c heavy cream OR 2 oz grated cheddar (for broccoli) OR 1 oz grated Paremesan (for spinach)
Sometimes I add some chopped onion, or onion powder or garlic powder or whatever other spices or herbs sound good

Cook the veggies in the broth until done. Then puree it in a blender or with a stick blender. Add the cream or cheese and serve.

This makes a big bowlful - about 3 cups with the frozen veggies.
