Stir fry greens

Sometimes the hardest part of the menu planning is deciding what the side dishes will be. You know you need a vegetable to accompany the protein but what will it be?? When you are putting a lot of effort into the main dish it helps to have some quick, delicious veggie sides. Otherwise, you might end up like someone I know (who shall remain nameless to protect his innocence) who ended up eating potatoes and pasta. In his defense, he was a poor, hungry college student. 🙂 And, to his credit, he was cooking! In college!

I digress….greens are quick and easy, especially when you stir fry them in a cast iron wok (We like cast iron around here!). We used kale here from Signal Mountain Farm but any green you have on hand will work.

Chop up some onion and get it started in the wok

Add the chopped up greens. You may have to add them in batches as they cook down

Add a splash of vinegar and soy sauce

Cook the greens until they wilt to your liking and you’re done!
