Cooked Greens over Brown Rice
I can't think of anything tastier than fresh organic greens lightly sauteed with a hint of garlic, red pepper flakes, & just a touch of salt. The greens are served with black eyed peas and slices of mushrooms, sauteed with onions, garlic, and ginger. What truly makes this dish appealing are the hidden flavors of garlic and ginger. In addition, fresh or dried thyme is a wonderful earthy spice which can be added to the sauteed onion mixture. This dish comes together quickly for a hearty and healthy meal any day of the week. Simply get the rice cooking and by the time its finished, the remaining ingredients are prepared and cooked. I had a few beets on hand so roasted them up while my rice was cooking. Enjoy!
