Calling all cooks!

What would you do with 'braising greens'?  We got them in our CSA this week and I just don't know what to do with them.  We typically eat them as salad, but I know they aren't meant to be eaten that way (right?).  

I am hoping to make a watercress salad tonight.

Thoughts on this?

Re: Calling all cooks!

  • "Braising greens" are typically something like collards, kale, mustard or turnip greens. You braise them to make them more tender and to leach out some of the bitterness. They're easy to cook. I like to fry a little chopped bacon with some garlic, and then add the greens and some chicken broth. Then just cook them on low for a half hour or so.

    They're delicious, but not really a good substitute for watercress.

  • You're right, my question was two-fold.  I have watercress for the salad, I also have braising greens, and mustard greens too actually :)

     This. I usually add some onion and red wine vinegar as well. Sometimes some pepper flakes if I want a little kick to it.
