Creamed Sesame Greens



1/2 cup water

1 large container of greens (spinach, kale, collards, mixed, whatever you like)

2 cloves garlic thinly sliced

2 tablespoons tahini

3 teaspoons water

1/2 teaspoon tamari

1/2 lemon


  1. Bring water to a boil in a large skillet with a tight fitting lid. Add greens and cook for 1-3 minutes. Drain the greens and set aside.
  2. Heat oil over low to medium heat in the skillet and sauté the garlic slices for 1-2 minutes until light golden. Stir in cooked greens and add a pinch of salt. Cover and cook for 1-2 minutes to mingle flavors.
  3. In a small bowl combine tahini, water, tamari and mix until creamy. Pour sauce into the pan with cooked greens and stir until thoroughly mixed. Squeeze lemon over greens and serve.
