My grandmother would make a Frittatta with them that was out of this world. They tend to be a bitter green not to every ones taste. Thank goodness there is such a wide variety of greens to choose from, they all fit into any recipe nicely.
1 to 2 Lbs. of fresh greens (escarole, dandelions, spinach, kale...)
2 or 3 cloves garlic (sliced or chopped)
fresh hot pepper or flakes(to taste)
salt & black pepper
Clean and wash greens.
Boil or steam greens until tender(4-5 minutes) Drain well and chop or leave whole. In a pan, heat up oil, saute garlic and hot pepper (do not let garlic get too brown, as it tends to get bitter) add greens and cook over medium heat until greens are hot and coated with oil.
Salt and pepper to taste
I sometimes also like the addition of a squirt of fresh lemon juice and a sprinkling of grated Romano or Parmesan cheese.
