As a child I was fond of Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham. I still quote it to describe something undesirable: “I do not like them, Sam I Am.” And when coaxing a recalcitrant person to try a new food, I still ask: “Would you eat them on a boat? Would you eat them with a goat?”
My American friends are great lovers of meat, potatoes and sweets, but look with suspicion on anything green. I used to be the same, but long years of vegetarianism have taught me to enjoy my dark leafy greens. In fact, most of my dinners are based on greens, and I feel deprived if I can’t have them several times a week. Lately I have tried the combination of eggs (from happy chickens) and greens. Not only is it delicious, it’s fun to cook, and fast.
