mixed greens & beans salad

Posted on

I would like to incorporate more leafy greens into my diet: swiss chard, kale, collard greens, etc. My problem is they can be so bitter sometimes. I think I found the green of my choice: collard greens and the method of cooking of choice: boiling in vegetable stock, garlic cloves and olive oil.

In the mix:

  • Grilled eggplant
  • tomatoes
  • kidney beans
  • spinach
  • pearled barley
  • Collard greens

Most delicious way to prep  collard greens:

  1. Remove greens from stalk and wash well.
  2. Place green leafs in saute pan, adding enough vegetable stock to cover entirely
  3. Place 3 garlic cloves in pan
  4. Boil greens for 5 minutes
  5. As stock starts to evaporate, add olive oil
  6. Let stock completely dissipate and allow greens to brown in oil
  7. ENJOY!
