Green leafy vegetables


March 25, 2016


If you already have your greens prepared ahead of time from the "Green leafy vegetables to use in other recipes" then this is a quick and easy side dish of leafy greens. Tastes great with "Pesto chicken". Also a great filling for omelettes or just as a side to some scrambled eggs or fried eggs.

Use any amount of the "Green leafy vegetables to use in other recipes" recipe. Depending on how many people you want to feed, use about 1/3 of a cup per person.

Olive oil

Cream (optional, tastes also great without) either dairy milk cream or coconut cream - around 25 - 50 ml per person

Garlic - around 1 glove per two people

Salt to taste

Nutmeg, grated to taste

Pesto and/or Parmesan (optional)


Heat some olive oil in a shallow frying pan, add chopped garlic and stir frequently for a very short time. Be careful as garlic burns quickly. Add spinach and cream (if using) and let simmer for 2-5 minutes, add salt and nutmeg to taste. You really can use as little or as much cream as you like. Tastes also great with a bit of pesto or sprinkled with some Parmesan when serving.
