Super Simple Cleansing Greens

BySarah Axtell, ND January 4, 2015

This is my go-to recipe in the winter for cooking those green leafy nutrition power houses: kale, collard greens, rainbow chard, and/or spinach. This recipe is warming, easy and detoxing. What more could you ask for?!I typically double this recipe so I can have an easy lunch prepared for a couple of days.

Super Simple Cleansing Greens- serves 1-2 (these greens cook down!)

1 bunch of greens (rainbow chard is my favorite in this recipe), chopped

1 tbsp coconut oil

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

1/4 water

1 clove garlic, minced

1 tsp Italian spices- thyme, oregano

Salt and pepper to taste

1/4 cup walnuts, chopped (as a topper)

1-2 tbsp crumbled goat cheese (optional)

In a medium skillet, saute garlic in coconut oil for 1 minute over medium heat. Then add  greens, balsamic vinegar, water, and spices. Cook over medium-low heat for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and top with chopped walnuts and goat cheese (optional). Enjoy!
