Gorgeous Greens

October 21, 2011

Leafy greens are a powerhouse of nutrients and blast the body with fiber, minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants.

Plenty of people tell me that leafys are too bitter or boring, or just that they don't like them. To this I say, you probablty just haven't had them prepared well.

In addition to tossing them in just about any dish from stews and soups to eggs and stir-frys they can be delicious as a side dish.

This recipe is a perfect way to get a range of leafys while nourishing your body and satisfying your taste buds.

4 fresh Swiss chard leaves
4 fresh Lacinato kale leaves
4 fresh Collard green leaves
2 tablespoons Olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup stock, vegetable or chicken
1 lemon, zested, juiced
to taste, salt
to taste, pepper
