Simple Sautéed Pea Greens
1/4 lb. Red Dog Farm pea greens
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
Salt to taste
Lemon juice (optional)
Rinse the pea greens in cold water to remove any grit. Shake off excess water, but don’t bother patting them dry.
Heat the oil in a medium frying pan over high heat. Once the pan is hot, add the garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the pea greens, with that bit of water still clinging to them, and cook, stirring frequently, until the pea greens wilt and soften, about 3 minutes.
Season the greens to taste with salt. Drizzle with a bit of high quality extra-virgin olive oil (lemon-infused oil is particularly lovely on pea greens) and add a squirt of lemon juice, if you like.
