May 27th, 2011 No Comments » Posted in recipes, Spring
I bag spicy greens mix
2 cloves garlic, minced (can substitute garlic scapes)
olive oil
broth (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
splash of vinegar (balsamic, sherry, white wine, red wine.. any good vinegar you have laying around)
Heat a couple tablespoons of olive oil on medium-high heat in saute pan or other pot with high sides and a lid.  Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds.  Don’t let the garlic burn.
Add the greens to the pot along with half a can of chicken or vegetable broth OR 1/2 cup of water.  Cover and cook for 5-7 minutes over medium  heat, stirring every few minutes and adding more water or broth to prevent the greens from burning.
After 5-7 minutes, uncover season with salt and pepper.  Let liquid cook down a few more minutes, then add splash of vinegar to taste.
