Quick Bite: Flash Greens

I’ve eaten 3 plates of kale today:

can't get enough of you, baby.

6 months ago, I hated kale. Now, this is how I’m addicted to it:

Ingredients [inspired by Chicago Diner‘s flash greens]

2-3 cloves of garlic, chopped
3-5 large handfuls of kale [I used the Trader Joe’s bag, but chop it up if you buy in bunch]
1-2 handfuls of spinach
olive oil for pan
optional: Sriracha sauce

In a large skillet or wok, heat olive oil over low to medium heat.
Add chopped garlic to pan & sauté til slightly brown.
Toss a few handfuls of kale/spinach in with oil & garlic. Add more as kale cooks down.
When greens have almost reached desired texture [I like mine soft, but not mushy], remove from heat & cover.
Allow the pan’s residual heat to finish cooking as you get your plate ready for serving.
For an additional treat, top with a drizzling of Sriracha & serve.
