Firstly, many thanks to all my fellow bloggers for contributing their wonderful creations to my very first event :) Frankly, I was expecting a little over 50 recipes or so but thanks to you guys we have got an enormous collection of 121 delicious dishes made from green vegetables and fruits!! Absolutely delighted. Apart from the sheer number of responses, I am also glad that I have a handy reference for cooking green - from very unique  recipes like plantain kebabs and pea sprout stir fry to fascinating combinations like bok choy mushroom wontons and wirsing rouladen; the variety is simply stunning!!
