We eat a lot of greens. They’re delicious, easy to make, and so good for you. Here’s a recipe that works nicely with spinach or anything else green and leafy you might have lying around. (Right now we have a boatload of kale in the garden that this would be delicious with, too.) This makes a lovely accompaniment to the Chicken Tikka Masala we shared with you the other day.
This recipe is from Bon Appetit…
Heat 2 T vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 bunch coarsely chopped scallions, 2 dried chiles de arbor, 2 finely chopped garlic cloves and 2 tsp yellow mustard seeds. Saute until the garlic starts to brown and the mustard seeds pop.
Add 4 bunches flat-leaf spinach, stemmed and coarsely chopped, letting it wilt. Toss it often as it cooks, just until the spinach is tender. Serve with salt and pepper, and maybe Chicken Tikka Masala.
