Kale and Spinach Get Together
Can Serve 4 portions, however, I can eat the whole thing
This is an easy and healthy dish to enjoy by itself or with almost any kind of entrée. Personally, I do love my greens so I’ll make this my whole meal.
3 C. chopped fresh kale freshly water rinsed
2 C. fresh baby spinach freshly water rinsed with the kale
1/2 C. chopped onion
2 chopped garlic cloves
1/2 to 1 Tsp. crushed red pepper
1 Tblsp. olive oil
1/4 to 1/2 C. water or vegetable bouillon
1/2 to 3/4 C. of shredded 6 blend Italian cheese
Grated Parmesan for the topping
Put the olive oil in a large pot over a medium high burner and when heated, put in the onion, garlic cloves and red pepper. Stir until onions are translucent and garlic is slightly brown and add the freshly water rinsed kale and spinach and stir a bit more until they are somewhat wilted. Then add the water or bouillon and let simmer without a cover for about 15 minutes. (If you need a bit more liquid, add some.) Then add the cheese and let simmer for another 10 to 15 minutes. (Once again, if you need a bit more liquid, add some.) Place in a pretty dish and sprinkle the top with shredded Parmesan.
Variation: Instead of using the olive oil, chop some bacon and let gently fry in pot; remove bacon but leave the bacon oil and in it, sauté the onion, garlic and crushed red pepper. Then proceed as above and stir in the bacon with the veggies at the very end. Then sprinkle top with the Parmesan.
