Spicy Orange Greens

  • Serves 2
  • Preparation Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

  • ⅓ cup water
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon orange marmalade or jam
  • 4 cups greens (any)

The slightly spicy orange sauce in this dish is one of my favorites. You can serve it with any greens you like or have on hand, but collard greens are my favorite to use. For a complete meal, serve over or tossed with noodles.

Instructions:

Pour water, soy sauce, ginger and red pepper flakes into a skillet. Turn heat to high and saute until the ginger is fragrant, about 1 minute.

Whisk in marmalade and then add chopped greens. Reduce heat to medium and using tongs, turn greens into the sauce. This will help cook the greens down; stop when your greens are bright green and have softened. Serve.

Chef’s Note: Cooked broccoli florets may be substituted for the greens. Toss cooked broccoli with the sauce once it’s been warmed and serve.
