glorious greens

It was a simple Sunday. A day of sleeping in, coffee on the couch, a trip to chinos, an afternoon nap and then dinner made with all of my favorite things.

While I was at Chinos farm stand I honed in on a new green I had never seen before. The farmer’s wife told me they were sweet potato greens! Who knew you could eat sweet potato greens?! Not me but I’m lover of all things sweet potato so I couldn’t pass the greens up.

With nothing more than lots of garlic, lemon juice and good splash of white wine we had a bowl of nutrient rich, alkalizing greens to offset the Brie and prosciutto.  The greens were tender, rich in flavor and easy to cook.

You can really use any of your favorite greens; kale, collared greens, swish chard, beet greens or spinach would all work nicely.

Heat the oil, garlic and lemon zest in a sauté pan for about 2 minutes. Add the greens and sizzle for a couple more minutes until the greens are ultra bright green. Add the wine and cover. Let steam for 3 – 5 more minutes. Season with salt, pepper and a squeeze of lemon.




  1. This looks sooo good. Absolutely need to try it. I love greens!

  2. What lovely photos. Greens are the essence of goodness.

  3. I threw away a HUUUUUUUGE mound, had I known I could have eaten on it for a month!

  4. I have learned to truly love greens, especially swiss chard. I usually just saute onions, add the cut up stems of the chard, add the chard, some water, salt and pepper and it’s done. I even got my husband loving it. When I want a full meal I add black or pinto beans. Your recipe looks great.
