||Tender Greens with
Lemon and Ginger
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 large bunch of fresh tender greens
2-3 green onions, sliced into small rounds
2 cloves garlic, smashed and chopped
2 tablespoons fresh ginger root, minced
½ - 1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar or honey
1 Meyer lemon, zested and juiced
½ cup water
In a large pot with a lid, heat oil over
medium heat and add greens.
Stir until limp and
add green onions, garlic and ginger.
garlic is soft, stirring occasionally.
Add remaining ingredients, stir well,
cover and simmer over low heat for at least 30
until sweet and tender.
Serve hot or at room temperature.
Cover and refrigerate leftovers.
Note—Chard, beet greens or large spinach work
well in this recipe.
Young kale with small stems
works too, but if it is a large-stemmed variety,
strip the leaves off the stems before slicing and
remember it may take longer to cook.
