Eating Six Vegetables Before 8:00am
Don’t you just crave green vegetables sometimes? Man, I sure have lately! It’s Spring and many perennial flowers have poked through the soil but there is only wild lettuce in the garden right now. I’ve been eating a lot of it in salads but I discovered today that it is delicious when cooked also…a bit like spinach. It was even more delicious when I cooked it up with all these other vegetables. I used two good size ribs of bok choy, about a fourth of a green pepper, a small leek cut in bits, some quartered grape tomatoes, a couple of sliced button mushrooms and two good handfuls of the lettuce.
All this simply added to a skillet with a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper and a few shakes of soy sauce made me and my daughter the best breakfast! It only took a few minutes to wilt down the lettuce and yes, my nine year old ate six kinds of vegetables before 8:00am! Oh happy Day!
