Get Green!

The color green happens to be in my top three favorite colors. And it is such a wonderful color that has so many wonderful meanings. Environmental, money (yes, we were all thinking it), and probably my favorite, greens! As in the vegetables, that is. I love love love leafy greens: spinach, kale, mesculin, cabbage, and now, collard greens! Super easy to prepare and very tasty; perfect side dish for my smoked salmon and cod (thanks, Dad!)

Steamed Collard Greens




The Food
- 1 bunch of collard greens
- 1/3 cup chicken broth
- Handful of feta cheese



The Prep
Rip the leaves away from the stems of the greens
Stack the leaves and roll them jelly-roll style
Slice the leaves



The Method
Place the greens and the broth in a saucepan over medium-high heat
Cook until most of the liquid is gone and the greens are tender
Drain any remaining liquid
Serve sprinkled with the feta cheese



Enjoy :)


PS- one bunch of collard greens as a side dish will probably feed only about two people. Adjust recipe accordingly!
