Cookin’ Greens are Entering the Dragon’s Den [Cookin Greens Breakfast Pizza]
I had the pleasure of working with Cookin’ Greens on a project recently. They are scheduled to air on Dragon’s Den, a show about aspiring entrepreneurs who pitch their ideas and businesses to five multi-millionaires, with the expertise and money to turn great ideas into incredible fortunes, and a few bloggers were asked to create some recipes that would showcase their healthy, always-ready greens to the audience prior to the air-date (March 24th at 8pm EST on CBC!). Since I already had a bag in my freezer, I couldn’t think of a reason why I wouldn’t want to take part.
So we’re on the same page, Cookin’ Greens are pre-washed, pre-chopped varieties of greens that you can pull out of the freezer and toss into any dish, or serve as a side dish quick and easily. No chopping, no mess, just easily accessible greens that go from from farm to freezer in 6 hours, locking in all those healthy, delicious vitamins and minerals. All you have to do is pour them from frozen into a pan and cook them up. I tend to add them to omelets, pasta dishes, smoothies (especially great since the greens are frozen and add some bulk to the smoothie), and sauteed in a little garlicky oil for dinner.
Part of the task was being paired up with a Dragon that we would all base our recipes on. I was thrilled to be paired up with Arlene Dickinson, entrepreneur, communications mogul and sole owner of Venture Communications. Among many other ventures, Arlene is also the national spokesperson for Breakfast Clubs of Canada, which helps raise awareness of the importance of children having a nutritious start to the day. I wanted to focus on that when I created a breakfast recipe using the Designer Mix variety of Cookin Greens, which has spinach, collard greens, rapini, yellow beans and onion (and no added salt, sugar or fat) - a great mix of flavours that’s as good on it’s own as it is folded into eggs. You can download my recipe for Cookin’ Greens Breakfast Pizza on their Facebook page today. It’s simple, nutritious, and if I may say so, it’s pretty darn tasty, too!
Cooking Greens wants to make sure everyone gets to try their products, and wanted to give away 1 cooler bag and a coupon for a free bag of Cookin’ Greens. All you have to do is comment below letting me know what recipe you’d make for Arlene Dickinson using Cookin Greens. If you “like” their Facebook page, let me know in a separate comment for an extra entry.
Good luck to all who enter and don’t forget to tune in to see Cookin’ Greens battle the Dragons on March 24th at 8pm.
