Quick Cooked Greens with Garlic and Red Pepper Flakes
Why This Recipe Works
For our quick cooked greens recipe, we wanted to rid these greens of some of their bitterness, but not all of it. A shallow blanching removed enough bitterness to make these assertive greens palatable but not so much as to rob them of their character. Once assertive greens had been shallow-blanched, they could be cooked in five minutes with garlic and red pepper flakes for a quick side dish.
