Posted in Collard Greens, Side Dish


Garlicky Collard Greens

Collard greens can be sandy, so to clean them, submerge them in water to loosen any grit, then wash and dry. This technique of blanching the collard greens in boiling water, then sautéing them takes away any bitterness.

SERVES: 4

INGREDIENTS:

500 g chopped collard greens
2 Tbsp olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced (about 4 tsp)

DIRECTIONS:

1. Bring large pot of water to a boil. Add collard greens, and simmer 5 minutes. Drain.

2. Heat olive oil in same pot over medium heat. Add garlic, and sauté 1 to 2 minutes, or until golden brown and fragrant.

3. Add greens, and sauté 5 minutes, or until tender. Season with salt and pepper, and serve warm.

Posted in Romaine Lettuce


Blue Cheese & Bacon Lettuce Boats

Think of this recipe as your favorite bacony wedge salad reimagined as an additive party snack!

INGREDIENTS:

180g ounces smoky bacon
2/3 cup whole-milk yoghurt (not greek)
1 garlic clove, finely grated
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp honey
salt
freshly ground pepper
180g blue cheese, crumbled 
2 heads romaine lettuce
2 Tbsp finely chopped chives
lemon wedges (for serving)

DIRECTIONS:
  1. Cook bacon in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, turning often, until brown and crisp and fat is rendered, 8–10 minutes.
  2. Transfer to paper towels and let cool (reserve rendered fat for another use, or discard, though that’d be sad).
  3. Chop bacon and set aside.
  4. Using a fork, mix yogurt, garlic, lemon juice, honey, and half of blue cheese in a medium bowl, mashing away to break up cheese.
  5. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon 1–2 tsp. yogurt mixture into centers of lettuce leaves, then top with evenly with bacon and remaining cheese.
  6. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer lettuce leaves to a fancy serving platter you thought you’d never use and top with chives.
  7. Squeeze lemon wedges over and serve.
