A Perfect Marriage- Garlic and Greens

Simple ways to make vegetables fabulous any night of the week!

Today I’m sharing my tried and true methods of cooking green vegetables. Super easy, delicious and absolutely beautiful.

Remember, the we eat category is not about culinary prowess but about everyday healthy meals, snacks and side dishes that can be cooked on the fly.

Leave the greens that taste like grass to the hippies. If I’m going to fill 1/2 my plate with vegetables every night, they have to be worthy of center stage.
