Stewed Greens and Tomatoes

Serves 6

Another easy way to make hearty cooked greens that are really flavorful.


  • 1 1/2 lbs greens of your choice rinsed, de-ribbed and roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves
  • 1 15 oz can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh oregano, thyme, or rosemary
  • 1/2 tbsp smoked paprika
  • Shaved Parmesan cheese, optional


Sauté the onion in the olive oil over medium high heat in a large skillet until barely softened. Add garlic, herbs, and salt and continue sautéing until onion begins to turn golden, about 5 more minutes. Add tomatoes and bring to a boil. Lower heat and cook until thickened, about 10 minutes. Stir in greens and paprika and cover pan. Cook greens covered, stirring every now and then until desired tenderness. Serve passing the Parmesan and cracked pepper at the table.
