It happens to align really well with my commitment to try to eat more healthily this year, a lot of which has been focused on green juices, smoothies and cooking with mroe greens (especially since I am not a massive fan of salads).
Two nights ago I made Mediterranean Greens with Pine Nuts and Raisins.
I'm not gonna lie: Per usual I didn't have exactly the right ingredients, and I didn't follow instructions exactly. Most notably, i didn't have raisins like I thought I did...but I DID have dried cherries. You know what? They worked just fine.
In addition, I used a mix of greens (spinach, collards, kale) and it wasn't quite the mix in the receipe, and since Atlas recommends cooking for different lengths of time, depending on what kind of greens you use (and I didn't use a mix of greens that matched exactly her suggestions) I played it by ear on that.
Despite all that, this came out really nicely. I especially loved adding the lemon juice at the end. I served it with couscous and some soy curls that I seared in the same pan I cooked the greens in.
My S.O. is not a fan of cooked greens, actually, but he really liked it too.
This was easy...the epitome of simple and tasty and comfort food that felt healthy. So, a keeper.
