A great way to use all the greens piling up in your fridge!
Peanut Butter Greens
from our friends at Mustard Seed Community Farm
This recipe can be used with most any cookable green: kale, collards, bak choi, beet greens, turnip greens, radish greens, spinach, etc. Don’t hesitate to leave the stems in for a nice crunch! The recipe is easily multiplied to use more greens, and they cook down, so it won’t result in an overwhelming amount of food.
2 Tablespoons oil
1/4 onion or one green onion: chop finely
1 clove garlic (optional)
1/2 teaspoon ginger powder, or 1/2 Tablespoon grated fresh ginger
1/3 pound (2 to 3 cups) greens, torn or chopped into bite sized pieces
1 pinch salt
1 to 2 Tablespoons peanut butter
Fry onion in oil on medium heat, 5 minutes. Add garlic and fresh ginger (if using) about halfway through, or the powdered ginger at the end of 5 minutes. Add the greens and a pinch of salt, reducing the flame somewhat, and covering the pan to steam the greens. Leave covered for 5-10 minutes. Add peanut butter, and stir to mix thoroughly. Stir til all the greens are limp, adding more peanut butter or salt to taste. Serve warm.
