Braised Greens


Quantity Ingredients
1 large bunch green kale or ruby chard
1 tbsp olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp lemon juice
Amount Freshly ground black pepper to taste


Stem the greens and rinse thoroughly.

Heat a wok or large skillet over medium heat.  Heat the oil, add garlic, stirring until golden brown.  Add the greens all at once.  Toss with a pair of tongs, sprinkle with salt and cover for several minutes to allow the volume to steam down.  Uncover and continue to toss until greens are wilted.  Add vinegar and lemon juice.  Sprinkle with pepper.  Serve hot.
