Try this sauteed greens recipe and you'll never look at greens the same way again!

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 8 minutes
Yields: 5 servings


  • 1 bunch kale, collard greens, broccoli rabe, Swiss chard or spinach
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ small onion, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • Pinch of dried red hot pepper flakes
  • Pepper to taste
  • A splash of Bragg’s Liquid Aminos or lemon juice


1. Wash the greens well. Chop them into bite-sized pieces. You may want to chop the stems thinner and keep them separately.

2. In a large skillet heat olive oil. Add garlic, hot pepper flakes and stems (if desired) and sauté until garlic just begins to turn golden.

3. Add the greens and stir-fry until all the leaves are wilted.

4. Add 1/4 cup water if the pan seems too dry and continue to stir-fry until the greens are done to your liking.

5. Sprinkle with salt, vinegar or lemon juice and serve immediately.


  • Add chopped red pepper at the beginning.
  • Add toasted nuts or seeds at the end.
  • Add 2 cups cooked white beans with a little bit of broth as soon as the greens wilt for a great protein dish.
