Sauteed Greens

Wow, it's already Tuesday?  It feels like forever since I've posted (even though it was only Friday!)  I decided to take yesterday off because #1.  I had to work until 4 yesterday (woohoo for time and a half!) and #2.  We had a cookout with friends, and I just couldn't get away to post.   So I hope you'll forgive me!

How did you guys enjoy the long weekend?

To make up for it, I'll be doing a recipe post today (not normally a recipe post day, if you haven't noticed!). 

The beginning of the CSA season always means that greens are aplenty so I've got to come up with different ways to use them.  But honestly?  My favorite way of preparing greens is just simply sauteed with a little bit of olive oil and garlic.  It really lets the greens shine!


1 bunch kale
1 bunch rainbow chard
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste

Wash the kale and chard well under cold water and drain.  Remove kale and chard from stems and slice the greens thinly.

In a large saute pan, heat olive oil under medium high heat.  Add garlic and saute for about 1 minute, or until fragrant.  Season with salt and pepper.

Add greens and saute until just wilted, about 2-3 minutes.  The color should still be a vibrant green.  Serve right away.

This is a quick and easy side dish that is sure to please!  And if you love greens, like we do, you definitely won't be disappointed!  See you guys tomorrow!
