Panda Express Vegetables Recipe
This Panda Express Super Greens copycat contains cabbage, kale, and broccoli. While I am not a huge fan of kale, this is one of the few ways that I actually enjoy it.
Kale is just loaded with antioxidants which is one of the reasons that it’s considered a “super green” food. Make sure that you add a few plants to your garden so that you can enjoy this copycat recipe all summer long.
Tools / equipment to make this recipe
- Dutch oven with a lid
What’s in the super greens at Panda Express?
This dish at the Panda Express restaurant contains exactly what we use: broccoli, kale, and cabbage. It is by far one of the healthiest things to eat at Panda Express.
Is the Panda Express Super Greens recipe gluten-free?
According to their website, none of their recipes are gluten-free. But, by using coconut aminos instead of soy sauce in this recipe, it is gluten-free.
That means that my daughter can enjoy this Panda Express vegetables recipe whenever she wants to with no worries about her gluten intolerance.
Is Panda Express Super Greens keto?
Yes, if you follow this recipe, it is keto. Be sure to look at the ingredients in the soy sauce or coconut aminos.
Coconut aminos really are the best option f you are trying to stay keto. Soy is discouraged.
How to serve super greens
This is intended to be a side dish rather than the main dish. So, you will want to serve it with some type of protein.
How do you cook Panda Express Super Greens?
These vegetables are lightly steamed in a dutch oven. This way, they stay crisp and retain much of their nutrients.
They really don’t take long to cook at all and are much healthier than if you boil them. It’s simple and delicious.
Panda Express stir fried vegetables
If you’ve visited Panda Express, you probably noticed that a lot of their vegetables are stir-fried rather than steamed. This adds extra fat and calories to the recipe.
Because this copycat Panda Express Super Greens recipe is stir-fried only briefly and then steamed, it is much lower in calories and in fat.
What do I need to make the Panda Express vegetables recipe?
- Peanut or vegetable oil
- Garlic powder
- Ground ginger
- Chicken broth
- Soy sauce (or coconut aminos if gluten-free)
How can I store leftovers?
If you have leftovers from this Panda Express vegetables recipe, place them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They will stay good for up to 5 days.
When it’s time to reheat them, just sautee them briefly in a small pan. Don’t cook for them for too long or they may lose some of their crispness.
