I learned my lesson and wore surgical gloves for that prep work. Here's what it looked like as I set the whole pot to simmer...
Mmmm! Grass fed beef, black beans, white beans, pinto beans and baked beans with red peppers and jalapenos, garlic, onions, tomatoes and all manner of spices.
Then I got going on tonight's collard greens, spicy, garlicky and glazed with some balsamic vinegar. They came out sweet, tender and yes, spicy and garlicky. I'll be serving them with grilled chicken brushed with a bit of BBQ sauce.
It's been a green day for me and I'm feeling better already.
So, greens... how do you like yours?
