  • 8 leaves of dinosaur kale or collard greens (either taste great with this recipe!)
  • 1/4 cup golden raisins
  • 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp (separate) EVOO
  • 1 Tbsp pine nuts
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • splash of water

What to do:

Tear greens into about 1 inch pieces. In a large pan, pour 1 Tbsp EVOO and turn to medium heat. Pour greens into pan. Cook for about 10 minutes or until the greens are slightly wilted. Stir occasionally. With about a minute remaining, add garlic and a splash of water and stir together. Remove from heat and place greens and garlic mixture into a medium sized bowl. Dress the mixture with the remaining ingredients and mix. Serve immediately.
