Wilted Greens

This recipe is incredibly quick to prepare, rich in flavor, and makes a great side dish. The butter adds flavor but can be excluded for vegan/low-fat diets.

Ingredients (Servings : 2 ; Time : 5-10 minutes)

½ to 1 T unsalted butter
1 to 2 T olive oil
1 T chopped garlic or shallots
1 head (3-4 cups of leaves) tat soi or any other dark leafy green, base removed (tear into smaller pieces if using a large leaf plant like chard)
soy sauce


Rinse greens thoroughly. Melt butter and olive oil in a wok or sauté pan over Medium High heat.

Add garlic and sauté until golden. Stir in tat soi and cook - stirring constantly - until lightly wilted.

Remove from heat and cover, allowing the greens to steam in the pan for a minute or two.

When ready to serve, toss with about 1T of soy sauce.
