Recipe: “Zestful” Green Veggies


  • 1 Bunch of kale, Swiss chard, collards, spinach OR 2 Small crowns of broccoli, 2 cups of cut green beans, etc.

  • 2 Cloves of minced garlic

  • 1 Tbs (generous) Simply Ghee

  • 1 Tsp lemon zest

  • 1 Tbs fresh lemon juice

  • Unrefined salt and freshly cracked pepper to taste


  1. Melt 1 tablespoon of ghee over moderate heat.

  2. Add the garlic and lightly brown – then add any veggie/greens (pressed for fluid removal) and lightly sauté till coated. Cover to assist in steaming.

  3. Tossing a TBS of water in the pan can hasten the process.

  4. Once al dente, add the lemon zest and freshly squeezed juice.

  5. Toss and when hot remove from pan and serve.

  6. Season to taste with unrefined salt and freshly cracked pepper.

The choices are endless when it comes to leafy greens and veggies prepared this way. You can always add your favorite herbs and spices when warming the ghee to release their healing properties. If using seeds like sesame, caraway or cumin – place them in the pan first and when they begin to pop, add your other herbs or spices.

Serves two as a side dish or one generously as a light and healthy meal.

Simply Ghee available at The Healthy Grocer in several flavors including Plain, Black Garlic, Honey, and Sriracha.
