Sauteed Power Greens and Mushrooms

This recipe is one of those easy weeknight side dishes that is inexpensive and super delicious.

Sauteed Power Greens and Mushrooms

It’s just sauteed power greens and mushrooms, seasoned simply with some fresh lemon juice and garlic.

The mushrooms require a little patience, since it’s important to let them cook long enough to get nice and golden and move past the rubbery stage ;), but once the mushrooms are done, the garlic and greens cook up within minutes and you’re ready to serve.

  1. Simple, easy, healthy and so delicious. This actually reminds me of some sauteed Indian greens my mom used to prepare. I like that you added mushrooms which gives a nice bite and that incredible umami flavor.
