Super Simple Seasonal Greens
Serves: 2 - 4
Seasonal Greens such as:
  • Swiss Chard
  • Kale
  • Collard
  • Mustard greens
  • Dandelion greens
  • Nettle greens
  • Lamb Quarters
  • Turnip greens
  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower
  • Sweet Potato
  • Spinach
  • Arugula
  • Olive oil – organic, cold pressed
  • Umeboshi Plum Vinegar (you can get this wonderful sour, salty vinegar at the health food store), Apple Cider Vinegar, or Lemon Juice
  1. Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a medium size pot. Place steamer insert into pot.
  2. Wash greens and cut center stems out. (You can cook the stems; just add them to the pot first and allow more cooking time).
  3. Place three or more leaves on top of each other and slice in long 1 inch strips. Slice once more lengthwise until all the greens are cut.
  4. Once water has come to a boil, add greens to pot and place lid on top. Steam for 1-2 minutes or until the greens are bright green and tender. When a fork or knife pokes through greens easily, the greens are ready.
  5. Remove from pot and place in bowl. Toss with 1-2 tablespoons olive oil and Umeboshi plum vinegar or sour condiment to taste.
Other Options:
  1. Toss the greens with butter, minced garlic and pine nuts.
  2. Toss greens with sun-dried tomatoes, black olives and feta cheese.
  3. Toss with organic raw cream, butter, white pepper and nutmeg.
