Pass the rape greens, please

by Jessie K on October 10, 2012

Jake planted a load of “rape greens” in our fall garden and we’ve been eating on them practically every night for a month.

I’d never heard of rape greens. The taste is reminiscent of kale with a soft lettuce-like texture.

I haven’t been able to find any recipes calling for rape greens because I get the feeling not many people have heard of them.

Gee, do you think the name has anything to do with it? This green suffers from a serious PR problem. The “rape green advisory council” or some such needs to get on a name change stat!

I propose “consensual greens.” What do you think?
