Crispy roasted potatoes, broccoli and finely chopped collard greens… sounds good? Then you’ll love this Green Power Bowl!

I wanted to make a dish that only used seasonal produce and came up with this delicious and actually super easy to make meal. Collard greens are awesome because they’re in season in fall and rich in vitamin C, fiber and vitamin K. Broccoli is also rich in vitamin C and fiber and one of my favorite veggies all-time. Oh and potatoes? … potatoes are just the bomb. My boyfriend caught a cold, so this was the perfect meal to stock up on that vitamin C!

What is also great about this meal is that it is a one-pot-dish! Just toss everything (well..not actually all at once, but step after step) in the pot and let it roast until done. The result is this super fresh, crispy and yummy Green Power Bowl.

How are collard greens called in German, please? Is it like a type of kale? Are they comparable taste/nutrition-wise? I keep hearing about the wonderful nutritious values of collards, but can't find what it's called in my language (Czech) or where I could buy it. I only see kale in shops here from time to time (and usually without the outer leaves) :/

I've had problems with the translations of the different cabbage types too! The german name for this kind would be "wirsing" but I'm 90% sure they labeled it as "gr√ľnkohl" in the supermarket, so I think they aren't sure either. Here is an interesting site where you can see the most important different types of cabbage and their german names. I've actually never seen kale (like they have it in the US) in the stores here and I have been looking for it a lot, so I don't know if they are comparable taste-wise. Oh and here is a picture of the wirsing - this is what my cabbage type looked like. I hope you'll find it - good luck!

This bowl looks really tasty, I can imagine cooking this for lunch one day soon, it looks so quick to throw together! Also, broccoli is also one of my favourite veggies <3

Broccoli is such a beautiful vegetable! It always reminds me of a miniature version of big, bushy tree. :D Yes, the bowl is really easy to make and it always makes me feel good when I eat completely seasonal dishes ^.^ Winter is here soon enough, I've got to take advantage of these great fall veggies while you can take advantage of all these great summer veggies and fruits (aaah... I envy you! :D)

When does the paprika get added?

Ops, thanks for asking! The paprika powder goes into the pan together with the salt, garlic powder & dried rosemary. I updated the instructions :)
