@The Late Night Gourmet, I am presuming that any fresh leafy herb would be included?
If it's leafy, then it will be hard to disallow it. Please note that I'm also not terribly strict on the green part. Purple kale was on the sample sheet I listed when I announced the new ingredient, and radicchio would also be allowed. Just ask if you're unsure. In this case, greens is a description of the part of the plant, rather than the color. Here's a case where I won't allow other parts of the plant to satisfy the requirements of the challenge: turnip greens and carrot greens are allowed, but turnips and carrots aren't (unless you also include greens of some kind).

Please note that the judge is including basil and cilantro (coriander) in the category of leafy greens.

I use coriander leaf a lot but I assume that it has to be predominant in the recipe. Also basil is used extensively here.

I guess that means cauliflower is excluded unless the leaves are included in the dish. I've not cooked cauliflower leaves and never had the desire to do so.

My wife made a grass omelette some time ago. She calls the grass "lost husband" but I've no idea of the proper name.

[Edit: It's not "lost husband" but "pàk-dtam-leung" which translates as "ivy gourd"].
