Summer Time Greens
Most farmers markets have the garlic shoots and green leafy vegetables.
Such as Swiss Chard, Mustard Greens, Kale and so on. Here is what to do with them.
I might have a few hot and cold ideas.
It is Summer Time, if you are Vegetarian simply substitute the Bacon with Coconut oil
1/2 # Bacon
1 med. Onion cut Julienne ( if from farmers market cut some of the green with it as well )
4 cloves of Garlic minced
3 Garlic shoots split and cut 1-2″ long
1-1/2 # of What ever your mix of greens is, rinse them well and let drain, some of them may need toweling.
I layer them and roll them up and cut across about 1/8″-1/4″ thick.
1/3 c. Chicken stock or Vegetable stock. Find the Chicken stock here https://homeontherange.blog/home-on-the-range-2/

Salt and Pepper to taste
a pinch of Nutmeg
In a large skillet render the Bacon on mid. heat. add the Onion and saute about 1 minute.
Add the minced Garlic and let expand, that is you can smell the Garlic.
Next the garlic shoots toss a couple of times and add the assorted greens.
Toss the Greens together until thoroughly mixed.
Add 1/3 c. Chicken or vegetable stock. Let that steam for a minute and mix.
Season with Salt, Pepper and Nutmeg.
I do like to add different herbs that are growing in the garden that changes it up and adds different flavors.
Turmeric and different spices like curry as well as Peppers of different flavor and heat profiles.
As Jack LaLane would say these are the Super Foods and Spices.
