Description

When winter doldrums hit the salad bowl, when lettuce sports sky-high prices, don't despair: The produce department boasts a wealth of dark leafy greens to perk up your plate, your nutrient intake and your taste buds. Tender greens are rarely bitter, although some are spicy, and don't take long to cook. Be careful not to overcook your greens.  Serve Lemon Pecan Pork Chops or Red Beans and Rice with Smoked Sausage.

Ingredients

4 pounds greens (winter, kale, chard, beet greens, collards or mustard greens or a mixture, rinsed and torn into bite-sized pieces)
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup parmesan cheese (grated)
1/4 cup onions (minced)
6 ounces roasted red peppers (drained)
2 cloves garlic (minced)
salt (To taste)
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (crushed)

Directions

1In large saucepan, boil greens in water for about 3 minutes, just until wilted; drain well and set aside. In large skillet, heat one tablespoon of olive oil over high heat, saute bread crumbs and cheese until browned. Remove to small bowl and set aside. Add one tablespoon oil to skillet; saute onion until tender, about 4-5 minutes; add red pepper and garlic to skillet and saute 2-3 minutes; remove to serving bowl.
