Alice Water’s greens recipe

by Ben on December 13th, 2011

Our friend Sean made this for us and we were blown away by it’s simplicity and taste. It is now brought out for our greens 2-3 times a week.

  • 1 bunch of greens (chard, spinach, etc)
  • 3T olive oil and butter
  • 2 garlic cloves (optional)
  • 1-2T red wine vinegar
  • a pinch of salt or dusting of parmesan cheese
  1. Chop the garlic/onions, if you are into that kind of thing
  2. Coarsely chop greens
  3. Boil greens for 3 minutes, then drain.
  4. Heat up the olive oil and/or butter in the pot
  5. Add garlic /onions and sautée.
  6. add greens, only putting in a layer at a time to make sure they wilt before adding more
  7. Add salt, then cover
  8. Cook until tender: 2-15 minutes.
  9. Add parmesan if you want.
Serves 2 as a side dish
