Eating root to shoot isn’t a new idea. Long before it became a thing, my mother and grandmother were doing it. Growing up, it was always drummed into me that we need to respect not only food but also the farmers who produce and as a mark of respect, if it is edible, it is not be wasted. So very often we would have the leaves served up one day and the next day it was the stalks. This is a very traditional Andhra dish (the Telugu name is in small) and you can use the same technique to cook amaranth stalks, cabbage, radish or even plantains.
