Every time I make Indians greens (palak, saag, saagwala, etc) at home, the results are Fine but not as flavorful or as heavily spiced as my favorite Indian restaurants' dishes. Please provide me with your tried and true Indian greens recipes! [more inside]

Spinach and wolves

In 'The Half-Life of Facts' there's this neat anecdote on the importance of checking data: a guy puts a decimal point in the wrong place and everyone thinks the wrong thing about spinach for decades.

Help me grow great greens

I suck at gardening. Past gardening efforts have ended in disaster (bug infestations, groundhog eating everything, plants dying for no obvious reason that I can see). This year, though, I would like for it to be different. I would like to grow my own leafy greens--kale, spinach, lettuces, chard, collards, etc. I'm not so interested in other things like tomatoes and peppers. Do you have any advice for exactly what I need to do to grow great greens? [more inside]

How much spinach juice is tooo much?

Lately I have been juicing. My favorite thing to juice is spinach but recently I have been gathering that too much spinach is not a good thing. Something about goitrogens and oxalic acids. I would like to know how much is too much. Hive?

A Pound Is A Pound Is A Pound

How many pounds fresh spinach do I need to yield 1 pound cooked spinach? I can't believe how difficult this is to find: most of the Google search results are "x lbs spinach = x cups" or "how many ounces of fresh spinach in a pound" (groan). My recipe doesn't care about volume, it cares about weight!
