Creamy Sesame Greens

Serves 2

This simple side dish pairs your favorite greens with tahini, lemon juice and garlic.


4 tablespoons water, divided
6 cups chopped kale, Swiss chard or collard greens, tough stems removed
2 tablespoons tahini
2 tablespoons orange or lemon juice
1 clove garlic, finely chopped


Heat 2 tablespoons water in a large skillet over medium heat. Add greens and cook, tossing occasionally, until wilted, about 5 minutes. Drain well.

In a large bowl, whisk together tahini, orange juice, remaining 2 tablespoons water and garlic. Add hot greens, toss to combine and serve immediately.

Editor's Comment: How chewy do you like your greens? This recipe will give you tender greens if using Swiss Chard, but definitely chewy greens if using kale or collards. If you like a softer "mouth feel" to your greens, add more water and cook longer. Add the dressing when the greens have reached desired tenderness. They will still be delicious!
