    Default Looking for a good Sauteed Greens/Couve a Mineira recipe

    I went to a Brazilian Buffet a few weeks back (YUM!) and on the salad bar were sauteed collard greens (Couve a Mineira). As a southerner, I know greens, and even though these weren't boiled, they were delicious! I'm constantly seeking ideas for healthy foods, so I wanted to know if anyone had any recipes or suggestions on cooking this dish. I don't want it to get too soggy. I've seen butter in most of the recipes, but I wonder if olive oil is a good substitute.

    Any suggestions are welcome!

    I would think olive oil would work. I do not personally have a recipe... and this probably ain't healthy but, I bet if you used a little bacon grease, it'd be yummy!

    This popular recipe for collard greens comes from the Minas Gerais region of Brazil. Sliced collard greens are briefly cooked in garlic and olive oil for a healthy, tasty side dish. These greens are a traditional accompaniment to the classic Brazilian dish feijoada, but they go with almost any meal.

    • <LI class=ingredient>2 pounds collard greens (2 to 3 large bunches) <LI class=ingredient>1 onion, finely chopped <LI class=ingredient>3 cloves garlic, minced <LI class=ingredient>3 tablespoons olive oil <LI class=ingredient>2 tablespoons butter
    • salt and pepper to taste
    Preparation:


    1. Roll of collard green leaves and slice them into thin strips.
    2. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil, add collard greens, and cook for 5 minutes, until bright green.
    3. Remove from heat and drain. Set aside.
    4. Heat olive oil and butter in a skillet. Add onion and garlic and cook until the onion is soft and translucent.

    6. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

    Optional: Sauté some chopped bacon with the onion and garlic for an extra treat.
