Author Notes

The beauty of winter greens is found in their deep rich flavors and high nutrient density. As such, this recipe showcases a trifecta of lightly braised greens, allowing the flavors to meld and develop while also maintaining the nutritional profile of each ingredient. The greens are complimented by crisp Asian-inspired California ingredients that top this recipe off with the right flavor balance of salty, sweet, and of course the beloved, umami. —Patrice D'Agostino
