Monmouth County Co-op

Our Monmouth County Organic Fruit and Vegetable Co-op shares ALWAYS have 1-2 dark greens, sometimes even more!


What to do with all those greens? Co Op Member Divya Kapur makes GREENS FLATBREAD!


Greens Flatbread Recipe


  • Wilt any variety of greens (kale, carrot tops, Swiss chard, radish tops, etc),

  • Wilt with a little water in pan sauteed, or even microwave if you want!

  • Pat dry.

  • Blend in food processor/chopper/blender with a small amount of oil and salt

  • Add flour of choice (Divya uses whole wheat flour) and a few drops of cold water until the dough consistency comes together, until you can make a ball

  • Refrigerate for 2-3 hours and roll out (rolling pin) to make a flatbread

  • Cook flatbread in a skillet or on the grill.
