Greens With Garlic and Parmesan
40 mins (prep 20, cooking 20)
6 ingredients
6-8 servings
I'm not from the South, but when I first moved there I fell hard for greens. However, Yankee that I am, I don't feel that simmering them all day with a chunk of bacon truly releases their full potential. :D This is one of our favorite dishes and it can be adapted to suit many different varieties. I made turnip greens, cabbage, escarole, and curly endive last night. Mmmm. Note -- I guessed a bit on the weight because different greens are lighter or denser. A standard kitchen colander heaping full of chopped greens is about right. Prep time includes cleaning greens of ordinary sandiness. Really muddy ones out of your garden right after a rainstorm will take longer. ;)
