Greens That’ll Make You Go WOW!

I’m moving houses this week and I don’t really have the time to cook. I also know that if I don’t eat decent food I can’t function. I get grumpy and I can’t really afford to be grumpy in my new job. Not yet anyway! I’m also fighting the sniffles.

All this combined meant that tonight, all I wanted was a big bowl of greens. My friend Viv suggested this recipe and I can’t thank her enough. It packs a punch, let me tell you!

Ingredients:

1 bunch of kale, salad leaves, one large clove of garlic, juice of one lime, olive oil, salt, pepper and parmesan ( I used Lidl’s Grand Padano – gorgeous).

Method:

I bought some lovely black kale in the Temple Bar market this weekend. €1.00 for a nice big bunch. I also had some mustard salad leaves.

I shredded the kale finely and mixed it with the grated garlic, salt and the lime juice. Toss it once or twice and after 20 min the juice has done its magic. It’s cooked through the tough bits of the kale but has left it a bit of crunchiness.

Wash the lettuce leaves and place them in the bowl.

Drizzle with oil, grate the cheese and add some black pepper. Toss it all together and enjoy. It’s a real treat!
