Sautéed Fresh Greens and Herbs - get creative!
It's early in the season, after a cold, hot, and now cool (maybe normal) Spring. Summer crops won't be in for a good month. Now is the time to play with herbs and greens using the flavors in your farm share to make sauces, vinaigrettes and pesto (sorrel for citrus, garlic scapes for mild garlic, chives for mild onion).
Skillet Kale, Lemon (Sorrel) and Garlic (serves 2, takes 6 minutes)
1 Bunch Kale, washed and wet, coarsely chopped
3-4 Sorrel leaves washed and chopped + 1 tsp lemon juice
1 T Olive oil
1 Clove garlic and a few scapes chopped
Pinch red pepper (adds heat)
1 Pinch kosher salt
1 Pinch pepper
Heat oil in wide skillet over medium heat, add garlic and red pepper flakes; cook until
fragrant before garlic browns. Add chopped kale and sorrel until it starts to wilt, add salt
and pepper. Cook about 5 minutes until kale is tender and stir in lemon juice.
