My husband and some of his buddies are trying to eat healthier at work, so I had to come up with some sort of side that would be mostly empty calories for my husband. He wanted each of his dinners to be no more than 350 calories, so this was one of the healthy sides I made and man is it good. I portioned 1 cup of greens, 1/2 cup brown rice and 6 ounces of grilled chicken or pork. A side of streamed broccoli and that made one delicious and healthy meal for him.

I hope you try it sometime, it really is tasty.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
I did this in 2 batches, as it's a pot full until greens wilt.

Place 1/2 cup broth in large stock pot, 1/2 the mushrooms, spinach, kale, onion and spices...Over medium heat, simmer until greens are wilted and onions and mushrooms are tender. Taste and season more if needed.

Repeat or if you have a very large pot, you could make it all at once. It will shrink down to not near as much as you think it will be. I got about 12 - 1 cup servings. Can be stored in refrigerator and heated as needed.
