Category: Vegetarian, Vegetables

 Ingredients List

  • 12 c Mixed greens; such as
  • - Mustard, Arugula,
  • - Watercress, Dandelion,
  • - Kale, Spinach, Chard,
  • - Escarole or others
  • 4 lg Garlic cloves
  • Salt
  • 2 lg Handfuls Italian parsley
  • -(leaves), chopped finely
  • 1 Handfuls cilantro leaves,
  • - (or more), chopped finely
  • 3 tb Fruity olive oil
  • 2 ts Paprika
  • 2 ts Ground cumin
  • 1 Lemon; cut in wedges


MAKE A MIXTURE OF GREENS TO SUIT your taste. Cut away the stems and stalks
and wash the leaves. Set the greens in a steamer, with the tougher greens
on the bottom. Cover and steam until tender, about 10 minutes. Or, cook
each type of green separately in boiling, salted water, until done. Let
cool a few minutes in a colander, then squeeze out the extra liquid and
chop roughly. Pound the garlic and 1/2 teaspoon salt together in a mortar
until finely broken down, then add the parsley and cilantro and continue
working until you have a rough paste. Or, combine the garlic, salt and
herbs in a food processor and work until everything is fine. You may need
to add a little olive oil. Warm the olive oil with the paprika and cumin.
When it begins to smell good, add the herb paste and mix the 2 together.
Next add the greens and cook everything together for a minute or so until
any excess moisture has evaporated. Taste and season with salt, if
necessary. Pile into a serving dish and garnish with the wedges of lemon.
