Thanks, Sherri, I'm alsways looking for new and different ways to fix greens. According to latest research, green leafy vegetables are the perfect food, and we should all eat lots more of them! This will make it easy to include them in our diets.

Susan, you are so dead on when it comes to the addition of more green leafy vegetables to our diet. To make this recipe more healthier, subtitute the regular bacon for turkey bacon and use a litlle of the sesame oil to fry the turkey bacon. Happy Cooking! sw:)

To me, this sounds like a much better way to prepare greens than boilng em to death. Healthier too, since it should retain more vitamines with less cooking time... I would make it with spinach or kale I think. Cabbage would be good like this too. Thanx for sharing, Sherri. That has a nice ring to it "Sharing Sherri" : D cute

Funny you mention spinach, kale and cabbage. I've cooked those same veggies as well as julienne brussel sprouts this way. "Sharing Sherri" has a nice ring to it. Do you mind if I still it from you. LOL, I promise to give you the credit. Happy Cooking! sw:)
