Can someone please explain to me what vegetable leaves can be eaten. Seems like a dumb question I know. Rolling Eyes But if you can't ask a dumb question I will never know the answer, and I could eat something I shouldn't! Sad Sad

Obviously I know I can eat all brassicas. cabbage, broccoli etc. Very Happy

Can the leaves of turnip, radish, swede, green onions, beetroot study be eaten

Also do beetroot need to be cooked before eating.
Thanks FB

Turnip greens, radish greens, beet greens can all be eaten - raw or cooked. Regular onion greens can be used just like bunching (no bulb) onion greens.

Here's my dumb question: What is swede? idk

I found it! A Swede is a Rutabaga! Yes, the leaves can be eaten - it is a brassica - cooked or as a leaf veggie.

GG - learned something new already today!

Thanks GG. Im finding it very strange that in the USA people call there vegetables different things to us Brits. Maybe we should have a glossary on here happy smile

Here is a link on smoothies and greens. Lots of good info. There was another that I can't find on how good radish greens are for you. http://www.incrediblesmoothies.com/green-smoothies/why-and-how-you-should-rotate-your-leafy-greens/

We make smoothies everyday. We LOVE them. We throw whatever is growing in there. The only thing we've found so far that is pretty strong is arugula and kale, BUT kale is sooo very good for you, we use extra pineapple or organic oranges to help and we love it! We put our zucchini, tomatoes, cucumber whatever in there! My grandson LOVES to come over and pick and make "foovies" he calls them haha! Since we've been doing this, we haven't been sick at all, cholesterol is in the normal range for the first time, and feel wonderful!!
