Creamy coconut milk combined with fresh lemon juice adds just the right flavor to brighten up vitamin-rich, dark leafy greens. Substitute kale for the collard greens, if you like.

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3/4 cup coconut milk

Method: 

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add greens and cook for 2 minutes; drain well and set aside.

Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and cook, stirring often, until soft and translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Add salt, pepper, reserved greens, coconut milk and lemon juice, stir well and simmer until tender, 5 to 7 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
