Quick Cajun Greens

A quick recipe for you today: Saute onion and precooked (I microwave it) sweet potato in a pan. Add Cajun seasoning and fry for a moment. Then add chopped greens (we used both kale and collard greens -- note to self: collard greens take a long time to cook) and a can or two of black beans.

Jack added more Cajun seasoning while my back was turned, which resulted in a pretty fiery dish. Adding white rice and a dollop of sour cream on top helped.

(We had a New-Orleans-airport-souvenir package of Cajun seasoning, but depending on who you ask, it's just a combination of salt, cayenne, chili powder or paprika, and a few -- or many -- other spices you probably already own.)

The New York Times recently did a completely different take on greens, beans, and rice that would also work with CSA veggies: white beans with Swiss chard.

P.S. This is Erica's birthday ice cream cake, which is 100% farm-share-vegetable-free (you may remember past devious plots to trick her into eating beets), but which Liz wanted you to see because she and Jack did such an impressive job assembling it.
