Type: Vegetables
Courses: Side dish
Serves: 3 people

Recipe Ingredients

12 cups 1320g / 46ozMixed greens
  = (such as kale, chard, beet, or escarole)
  Salt - to taste
3   Garlic cloves (large)
1 cup 146g / 5.1ozFinely-chopped Italian parsley
1 cup 16g / 0.6ozFinely-chopped cilantro
2 teaspoons 10mlHot or sweet paprika
2 teaspoons 10mlGround cumin
3 tablespoons 45mlFruity olive oil
  Green or oil-cured Moroccan olives
  Lemon wedges
  Tomato wedges - (optional)

Recipe Instructions

Discard any inedible parts of the greens, such as kale stems and tough ribs. Plunge the leaves into boiling salted water and cook until tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain, then chop into small pieces.

Pound the garlic with 1/2 teaspoon salt in a mortar until you have a rough paste, then work in the parsley and cilantro and pound them briefly to release their flavors. Add the paprika and cumin. (If you do not have a mortar and pestle, chop the garlic with the parsley and cilantro, then add the spices.)

Warm the oil in a wide skillet over medium heat with the garlic-herb mixture. As soon as it releases its flavor, when the oil has heated, add the greens. Cook, stirring frequently, until any extra moisture has evaporated. Taste for salt. Pile into a dish and garnish with the olives, lemon, and tomato wedges.

This recipe yields 3 to 4 servings.
