Sauteed Leafy Greens
I took this picture with my cellphone, sorry it doesn't look more appetizing. :)
Wanna know how to cook some leafy greens for dinner? DONE!
Ingredients (measurements are approximations):
2-3 cups of different greens (Spinach, Kale, Swiss Chard, etc.)
1-2 Tbsp. Oil of your choice (I use Olive)
1-2 Garlic Cloves
Freshly ground pepper to taste
1. In a large bowl, add greens. Fill the bowl up with cold water, being sure to soak/coat the greens thoroughly. Let sit while doing step two.
2. In a large skillet, heat up oil and garlic. You will know oil is hot enough when you can flick a few drops of water on it and it will make a sizzle sound.
3. Remove greens from water (look at all the dirt and crud on the bottom of the bowl, you'll be glad you did step 1). Add a handful of the greens, cook until they start to turn a dark green color and get soft. Continue to add greens one handful at a time, stirring constantly. Add pepper to taste and serve as a side with your favorite lean protein. :)
