Good Old Generic Greens

Good for Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner…


1 Tbs oil or butter
1 Tbs diced garlic
Onions and hot peppers if you have them
1 bunch greens (collards, kale, chard, beet greens, turnip greens, mixed greens, etc)
Oregano (1 tsp dry, or 1 Tbs minced fresh)
A few Tbs Soy Sauce, tamari, or 1 Tbs miso (or to taste)
1 tsp Coriander


  1. Heat the oil in the bottom of your pan of choice. I myself never use anything but cast iron, the ultimate in durable heavy-bottomed kitchen implements.
  2. Try medium heat. You don’t want to burn your butter or garlic.
  3. Add garlic (and onion, hot peppers, if you have them). The garlic won’t need long, but the onion should caramelize.
  4. Add thinly sliced greens along with other ingredients, and sauté until greens are wilted and tender.
