yeah, fresh asparagus cooked on the stovetop in a pan with some olive oil and mrs dash.

my most frequent preparation is nas-tee! and kind of negates the healthy aspect of spinach. But it is yum-my!

I gotta agree with the green olives on pizza idea--unfortunately, so many places around here cop out with only the black.

kale anyway, you can imagine, baked sauteed
it's like spinach that doesn't fall apart

spinach sauteed in butter, but only for a second until it turns slightly softer and darker green. overcooking it kills the goodness of it so don't go overboard.

I usually just steam fresh spinach with a little bit of butter on top.

Asparagus is on the menu for tonight though.

Brussells sprouts.

Slice thin.
Add a little olive oil, some diced garlic and some wheat germ.
Sautee untill tender.

...or just steam 'em.

I like asparagus too. I usually just break the ends off, rinse 'em, and 'wave the whole bunch for 2 minutes.

I gotta agree with asparagus and olive oil, but also garlic.

Lately I've been making a ton of sauteed fresh green beans in a dijon/butter sauce, they're so easy and awesome.

I wish I could get the rest of my family to dig the awesomeness of brussel sprouts.

dijon/butter sauce

Spill it.

here's the full recipe, I sometimes alter it based on what I have available (fresh thyme, almonds).

2 lbs trimmed green beans
1/4 cup butter
2 tbs chopped fresh thyme
1 tbs dijon
1 tsp garlic salt
1/3 cup slivered almonds, toasted

boil green beans for about 5 minutes, until crisp-tender (or steam)
cool completely in a bowl of ice water, drain
melt butter in skillet on med/high heat
whisk in thyme, mustard, garlic salt
add beans and toss until heated through (about 4 mins)
sprinkle with toasted almonds

my signature spinach, which I make 3-4 x a week, as it takes just a minute or so:

1. wash fresh spinach leaves (even if they're already washed, dampen 'em in a colander for a sec - this will help with cooking).
2. shake excess water off, then put in saute pan with a few cloves of chopped garlic and a dash of olive oil.
3. turn heat to medium low, and stir a few times with a wooden spoon, while you're cutting a lemon in half and grating some of the lemon peel with a microplane.
4. squeeze lemon over spinach, add zest and a few healthy shakes of red pepper flakes.
5. mmmm, good! also a perfect backdrop for sauteed shrimp or scallops.

sauteed green beans:
1. be lazy and buy the trimmed green beans in the bag.
2. put 1T sesame oil in saute pan, and turn to medium.
3. add beans, toss occasionally.
4. when beans start to blacken (4-8 minutes), shake about 1 t. soy sauce over 'em, and cook about 1 more minute.

in these grey months, I also roast an eggplant and a box of cherry tomatoes (or, if they look decent, roma tomatoes) weekly. (for eggplants, I cover with Tony Chachere, olive oil, and garlic. tomatoes get 1 t brown sugar, olive oil, balsamic, s&p, and garlic.) roast on 350 for 30-45 minutes, tossing occasionally. perfect to gnosh on in salads, sandwiches, or as a side, and they keep in the fridge all week.

and, when it's really cold, I roast fingerling potatoes, tossed with olive oil, fresh thyme, oregano and rosemary from my garden, kosher salt, and pepper in my cast iron skillet at 400 for 30-40 minutes. absolutely delish as a snack or a side for anything!

The one I make the most is green beans outta the can, into the bowl, little pat of butter, little lemon juice and nuke it.

I like the asparagus better, but don't make it as much. Coat with olive oil, salt and pepper and throw it on the grill, or sauteed or roasted...

Top fave has to be greens. Good and porky greens.

Today I scored three jars of Garlic Lady spiced green beans for FREE! I'm totally loving them right now. Dang, those beans go for $5.25 a jar. total score. Yesterday I got 10 jalapeno poppers for a buck, and now this???

Spinach any way, kale, any type of cooking greens really. Asparagus on the grill is always killer. My favorite brussels sprouts recipe is just to cut 'em in half, saute in butter and olive oil, throw in a few spoonfuls of dijon or stone ground mustard and then turn the heat down low and let the sugar from the mustard sort of carmelize. Quick and easy.
