Cheesy Mixed Greens

I am trying to add a serving of veggies and/or fruit and a healthy dose of good fat to each meal.  I find that I am not hungry as often...that's a good thing.  I'm think I'm going to try this with just the spinach leaving out the kale and collard greens as I don't really like them but I do love spinach:)  Looks yummy to me!

Cheesy Mixed Greens (serves 2)

that thick layer of melty cheese conceals all sorts of greens

  • 5 oz baby spinach leaves
  • 2 large leaves curly kale, shredded (about 2 cups)
  • 2 collard green leaves, de-stemmed and shredded
  • 2 spring/green onions, finely chopped
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened to room temp
  • 1 tbsp sour cream
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup grated mozzarella
  1. Combine the greens in a steamer and steam for minutes until wilted (if you don’t have a steamer, briefly saute in a frying pan). Transfer to a sieve and drain well (I put something heavy on them and leave for about 5 minutes to make sure the spinach in particular is entirely dry).
  2. Mix the greens together with the cream cheese, sour cream, onion and garlic. Spoon into a small casserole dish.
  3. Sprinkle over the mozzarella, bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes until brown on top. Serve immediately.
