Warm Greens & Lemon Vinaigrette

This is a great rustic dish that can really work any time of the year. Adjust the greens to the season. Don’t be afraid to mix it up, use anything from kale and chard and broccoli to herbs, spinach, beet greens or sea asparagus for that matter.

Ingredients

  • 2 big bunches of leafy greens (4-5 handfuls)
  • ½ Head of broccoli or broccolini
  • 1 Handful of sea asparagus (100 gms)

Directions

Once the water has come to the boil, add the broccoli, and let that cook for one minute. Add the sea asparagus, cook for a further two minutes and add the leafy greens for one minute. Strain the greens and shake out as much water as you can.
