Please share recipes for greens and green-combining. No starch, sugars, fruits, grains, beans, tubers. Just excellent green-combining.

This sounds fabulous! I have been trying to figure out a way to eat more green stuff. I'm terrible about it. Thanks!

I saute with extra light olive oil. I don't let it smoke. Onions + garlic + olive oil is a classic taste combo.

Are you referring to refined olive oil? I wouldn't use that, heat or not. Why not the others you mentioned?

I made a kale, cabbage, bacon, and walnut dish the other day it it was really great. My whole family loved it. Even my picky little kids. ;)

Chop cabbage into small pieces, tear kale into large pieces, then cook in a large pot of well-salted boiling water, uncovered, until tender, about 8 minutes. Drain kale & cabbage, and, when cool enough to handle, press out the excess liquid.

Cook a few strips of bacon in a 12-inch heavy skillet. When cooked, remove the bacon and reduce the heat to medium-low. Add some chopped walnuts to the bacon grease and cook until until pale golden, about 5 minutes. Chop up the bacon and add it along with the kale and cabbage (and salt and pepper to taste if you like) back into the pan and cook (tossing) until heated through.

My personal favorite is cabbage and Swiss chard or beet greens sauteed in coconut oil, with leftover sausage chopped up in it.

Personally, I just find that a high quality sausage is absolutely necessary with strong flavored greens.

Do you mean collared greens and the like?

I almost always fry some bacon until crisp then take it out and add shredded greens and prehaps some onion or garlic to the pan. Then I saute until they are really bright green and take out right as the most done bit start fading.

You can add turnips after the bacon and before the greens, they like a little pork or beef broth.

Take your favorite greens, chop them into fine strips (it works even better if you freeze them before), put them with beat eggs, and your favorite protein/meat (must be already cooked), into an oven dish and bake at 350 (time to depend on how much you're making). You have a delicious paleo 'casserole' without all the non-paleo stuff. (add cheese if you do dairy, gooey goodness!). Salt, pepper, dash of cumin and tunmeric

Sorry, not the best 'recipe' template there, but it is pretty delicious.

You may be familiar with Steamed Vegetables, Green Salads, and Stir Frying. These are all great, time tested methods for "green combining"

I keep it simple. Saute the greens in olive oil with onions and garlic. Sometimes I'll use lard or coconut oil. Sometimes I'll sprinkle the end dish with coconut flakes.
