This is a very simple dish to prepare and cook. It's a good way of getting kids to try greens. Forget the boiled stuff we normally get, this is crisp, tasty, sweet and juicy. It's a great Easter accompaniment with roast chicken or beef and it's easy to cook.

Ingredients
 

  • 4 medium heads of firm, young spring greens
  • 6 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small red onion, sliced
  • 1 clove of garlic crushed (optional)
  • pinch sugar
  • salt
  • freshly milled black pepper

Instructions
 

  • Tear off and discard any yellow or old leaves from the outside of the spring greens.
  • Chop or shred remaining leaves as finely as possible, discarding the stalk, the wash and drain well.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy based pan, then add the finely sliced red onion and cook gently for a few minutes to soften.
  • Next, add the garlic and soften for 2 minutes.
  • Add the spring greens and stir well - it may look like a large quantity, but it will cook down by about half. You will get a little steam from the water left on the greens, this helps to cook the greens.
  • Season with a little salt, pepper and a little sugar.
  • Cover the pan with a lid, reduce the heat and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender.
  • Do not overcook once cooked strain in a colander and serve.
