Spicy Greens

By Avera

Ingredients
  • Makes 4 Servings

  • Serving Size- 1/2 cup

  • 1 lb fresh spinach (or collard greens or kale)

  • 1 Tbsp peanut oil

  • 1/2 large onion, coarsely chopped

  • 1 large tomato, chopped into small pieces

  • 1/2 small lemon, sliced thin

  • Fresh ground pepper to taste

  • 2 Tbsp curry powder, or to taste

Directions
  1. Wash the spinach thoroughly. Cook in a saucepan over low heat about 5 minutes; do not add water. (There is usually enough water already clinging to the leaves to steam the greens.) Collard greens or kale may take 7 - 10 minutes.

  2. Heat the oil in a skillet and sauté the onion and tomato for 4 - 5 minutes. Add the cooked greens, lemon slices, and seasonings; stir constantly for a few minutes. Serve hot.
