Steamed Greens with a spicy peanut curry sauce (Serves 4 to 6)​

  • 6 to 8 cups finely chopped greens


  • 1 tbsp virgin coconut oil
  • 1 to 2 small shallots, minced
  • 4 to 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp freshly grated ginger
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp coriander
  • 1 ½ tsp curry powder
  • ¼ tsp cayenne, or to taste
  • ½ cup organic salted peanut butter
  • ¾ to 1 cup water or coconut milk
  • 1 to 2 tbsp tamari
  • 1 tbsp brown rice vinegar
  1. Place the greens in a steamer basket in a 2 or 3 quart pot filled with about 2 inches of water. Steam for 7 to 10 minutes or until greens are very tender.
  2. While greens are steaming, heat a small saucepan over medium heat.
  3. Add the coconut oil shallots, garlic, and ginger; sauté for about 5 minutes, being careful not to brown.
  4. Add the spices and mix well.
  5. Then add peanut butter, water, tamari, and brown rice vinegar; whisk together and simmer over low heat for a few minutes until thickened.
  6. Add more water or coconut milk for a thinner sauce. For a smoother sauce try blending it in a blender before serving.
  7. Place the cooked greens into a serving bowl and pour the sauce over them. Serve immediately.
