Dear fellow food-lover,

Leafy greens are a hallmark of the  Mediterranean Diet - think of Greek spanakopita, garlicky sautéed greens in Italy, and Spanis h espinacas con garbanzos, or spinach with chickpeas.

In addition to providing great flavor, they may help  slow cognitive decline associated with aging , improve  heart health , regulate   insulin , and manage   weight . Happy cooking from the team at Oldways!

Caramelized onions and raisins add a touch of sweetness to these braised greens. Walnuts provide a delightful crunch!
