eating the greens all the time

my friends ask me how i manage to process all the greens i cook so frequently....i mean daily.......
it is a bit difficult but i have made it simpler as i do a few things worth sharing in my blog too..............

first of all buy them yourself.....the most fresh and clean lot
clean them immediately...buy them only when you have time....i do the cleaning after the dinner,a household help can do the same for you if you are lucky enough
i just nip off the roots and keep all the stalks as it is very good fibre....moreover it is easier to cut after washing the leaves
wash it in a deep bucket ...taking out the leaves each time to replace with fresh water../at least four times or untill the water comes out clean
drain for a while.............take it in a bunch...place on the chopping board and cut 2-3 inches long shreds......repeat cuttinn till all the leaves are copped............ then fill in poly bags which are pierced to make holes.............wrap and keep in the fridge...........it keeps fresh for a week.

when needed take out the required quantity and use accordingly...............if you need a puree,just blanch it and make puree...............and if fine chopping is required,just do it in the food processor.

a little effort goes a long way.
