Easy Recipe for Greens!

I made greens with leeks because that’s what I had in the fridge and ended up loving how it came out.  I tested it out on a couple of friends a couple of weeks later and got the seal of approval.

What you need:

2 bunches of greens (collards, kale, mustard greens)

1 leek

salt

1/4 c. olive oil

1/8 c. balsamic vinegar

Chop the leek and saute in bottom of large pan on medium-high heat.

leeks and olive oilChop greens v e r y thinly, using a large sharp knife.

Add chopped greens to leeks.

** The trick is to keep turning greens over so that they get cooked but are not just simmering in the pan. Your goal is to coat the greens in the oil/leek mixture and cook greens just long enough until tender but NOT so long they lose their precious color and nutrients…

You’re done.  Enjoy!
