Greens are healthy and plentiful this time of year. However, there is a bit of a challenge in convincing people to try them and find out just how delicious they can be. Here is a quick recipe that could go a long way
2 tbsp olive oil (or other oil)
2 cloves of garlic
1 shallot or 1/2 onion, chopped
1 bunch of greens (kale, swiss chard or spinach all work well) thoroughly washed, but not dried. Chop larger pieces into reasonable bites
3-4 tbsp lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste to taste
Saute the garlic and shallots in a frying pan with the olive oil. When they are soft, throw in all of the greens and the lemon juice. Put a lid on quickly and remove from heat. Leave the greens to steam until they are wilted (almost instantly for spinach, about 4-5 minutes for kale), season to taste and serve.
