Lemon-Garlic Sauteed Greens
This is so good and so easy and so healthy you will make it at least once a week! Common Sense Tip: Keep a small chunk of real Parmesan cheese on hand at all times. You will use it! If it starts getting old you can always grate it and put it in your freezer for times of desperation! Lemons are also good to have on hand. If they start getting old--juice them and freeze the juice in ice trays. The original recipe is from "Cooking Light: Super Fast Sides and Salads"--but I changed it from Swiss chard to kale. Spinach works too. If takes a lot of greens to feed a family of 4-6, but it's just Common Sense to halve this recipe if there are 2-3 of you.
1 T olive oil
1 T smashed and minced garlic
12 C chopped kale (or swiss chard or spinach)
2 T water
1 1/2 t fresh lemon juice
1/8 ground pepper
4 t shaved fresh Parmesan cheese
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add garlic; saute 2 minutes or until garlic just begins to brown. Add greens and 2 T water to pan; cook 3 minutes or until greens go limp. Stir in lemon juice and pepper. Sprinkle with cheese and serve warm!
