artichoke greens sauce

Collard green cabbage is much lower maintenance than spinach.  The leaves are not caked in sand and the big huge leaves make for easy washing.   These greens don’t wilt easily and you do not have to worry about squeezing water out and cutting out the stem is very easy.  Best of all, they are very low cost compared to spinach (at least where I live), can grow like weeds, and, in my opinion, have a slight basil or flowery herb taste

cutting board
french knife

*  4-5 canned in water, or, steamed medium artichokes, sliced and diced into small pieces
