Steamed Greens

Kale is only one of the many greens you can prepare with this simple and excellent approach to cooking greens. Any hearty, dark, leafy green you find in season will work with the flavors of garlic, salt, pepper, and a touch of vinegar to add a nutritious side to your meal.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1½ lbs. kale, stemmed and chopped
  • 1 cup water
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. cider vinegar

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Sauté garlic until beginning to brown (1 minute).
  2. Add greens and water, cover pan, and steam (4 minutes). Uncover, season with salt and pepper, and stir occasionally until greens are fully wilted and water is fully evaporated (4-5 minutes).
  3. Sprinkle vinegar on greens to serve.
