I buy the organic pre-washed greens from earthbound. Their 50/50 spinach/spring mix + left over turkey, tomato, onion, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper BOOM awesome salad. Add feta for extra awesome.

sauteed like spanich with garlic and/or shallots. Bacon fat- on my. Blasamic or a squeese of lemon on the dish. A braised leg of lamb or pig's foot are perfect sides.

Heat has little to no effect on oxalic acid. Spinach, chard, beet greens, and cabbage are fast-cooking greens and only need to be boiled/sauteed for a few minutes. Kale, collards and turnip greens are more fibrous and will take a little... (more)

Saute some onions and garlic in olive oil. When the onions are soft, add white wine and greens (chard, kale, etc.) and let it steam until it reached the desired texture. Grate some good parmigiana-reggiano cheese into the greens and enjoy.
