If you have an abundance of any greens in your garden it's a great idea to not let them go to waste. Prepared in a way as it's explained here, you can keep them either in the fridge for a couple of days or freeze them for later use. Use for frittata with greens, stir fries, greens in creamy garlic sauce or in a soup with all sorts of vegetables.
Once the water is boiling, throw in the amount of greens that you can grab in between two hands, push down into the water and put lid on top. After 1-2 minutes just when the greens have wilted, take them out with some tongs, place in a big colander and squeeze the excess water out. Quickly put them in the ice water and mix well. Once cooled place in a second colander and squeeze with both hands to get rid of as much water as possible. Chop roughly and do the same with all the greens, until all done. If not using straight away keep in fridge for a couple of days or freeze for later use.
