Sauteed Fall Greens with Garlic — Maple Avenue Market & Farm

We absolutely love these greens! We grow them at our farm and can supply them in the store almost all season long. This holiday season we'll have them prepared for purchase in the store. This is a quick, nutrient dense, spicy and garlicky side dish — a perfect accompaniment to any holiday meal or any day of the week! Make extra, they are good cold mixed with rice, in pasta or in eggs.


  • 2-3 lbs mixed greens (our Maple Avenue Market Farm Fall Cooking Greens mix includes  tat soi, arugula, mustard, kale, mibuna, mizuna)
  • 2 TBS olive oil
  • 5-6 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 large shallot, thinly sliced
  • 2 TBS good sherry vinegar
  • Salt and pepper


Heat olive oil in a wok or sauté pan over medium heat. When oil is hot, add garlic and sauté about three minutes, or just until starts to turn golden, add shallots. Stir constantly. When shallots are translucent add greens and a pinch or two of salt, and pepper. Stir occasionally until all greens are wilted, five to six minutes. Remove from heat and finish with the sherry vinegar. Taste and adjust salt and pepper. (serves up to 4)
