  2. My 12-year-old son recently started eating greens (I’m so happy!) thanks to his wonderful teacher, who is growing veggies with the kids, and cooking! I am going to see if she will try this with them. Thanks again, Mrs. Jain, for all you do. We love your food, and I appreciate how easy your recipes are!
