I landed just a couple of hours ago, and I already prepared my first meal. I have 3 roommates this weekend, and we had a quiet Friday evening with some wine, cheese and my braised greens. This is the first time I made braised greens. Actually, the idea came from the tapas place in Portland where I went to eat just for their kale salad, which they did not have. Then I decided to order braised greens, it sounded good at the time. But they didn't have that either. 2 days later, at home in California, I saw some random greens in the fridge and realized I am still up for braised greens. So, I made some. It was not bad! I will definitely make more.
salt or seasoning salt
Wash and cut up the greens. Heat the oil and fry the greens. Salt to taste and add other spices. Fry for a couple of minutes. Serve as a side dish. Braised greens are also good with cheese and crackers.
