Sautéed Greens with Nuts & Raisins

Recipe Thumbnail

Deep green leafy vegetables are an easy, tasty, versatile way to help meet daily goals- and they are the quintessential local summer vegetable.

Frozen vegetables are a dietitian’s unsung hero in the kitchen. Options like kale, broccoli florets, corn and spinach are as nutritious as their fresh counterparts and they help minimize waste while ensuring you have foods on hand for quick meal prep.
