This was another easy and delicious recipe from Ellie Krieger! It was chosen just for us by Joanne of Apple Crumbles. I have been trying to eat more greens recently and this one gave me the chance to try a new one to boot!
The recipe couldn't have been easier unless Ellie came to my house and cooked it for me: Cut up the greens (I used Napa cabbage), saute in a little canola oil, add soy sauce, rice vinegar and sesame oil. Serve.
It looked uninspiring in the pan...
And even in the bowl it was feeling a little shy...
I tasted it and it was good, but I felt it needed a nudge to greatness, so I added garlic powder, crushed red pepper flakes and roasted salted peanuts. That's when it stood up and said "Eat me for dinner."
So I did.
This wonderful recipe would work with mustard greens, escarole, and bok choy. And many others, for sure. If you'd like the recipe, you can find it over at Joanne's, or here.
Just a casual poll...does anyone else look at their close up stove shots and go "Geesh, I really need to clean this thing!?" It looks like I salt my cooktop pretty liberally, the food, not so much.
Please come back next week (no promises on a cleaner cooktop) for Fish Tacos with Chipotle Cream, hosted by one of my bloggie faves, Sara of imafoodblog.
