I see and I remember.

I do and I understand."


A simple way to serve steamed greens, made more digestible by the spice blend.

Serve with kicharee, pasta, or your choice of main course.

  • 1 tbsp ghee (clarified butter) or 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 tsp ground coriander seed, 1/2 tsp ground cumin and 1/2 tsp mild curry powder

  • lemon and sea salt to taste

  • optional kid's version: 1/2 tsp maple syrup

The Instructions:

1. Wash, chop and steam the greens until tender.

2. In a small pan, heat the ghee/oil and then brown the spices a small frying pan, stirring for a few minutes.

3. Toss the strained greens in the spice mixture, finishing with a squeeze of lemon and salt to taste.
