Asian Greens

Asian Greens

Asian greens come in a fascinating array of colors and textures. Some have curled or rounded leaves, while others produce feathery, deeply lobed leaves. Leaf colors range too, from deep red to light green, while some are mild and some are spicy.

All have high fiber content, antioxidants, and several vitamins and minerals. These leafy veggies can be steamed, stir fried, braised, or even served raw in salads!
