  • ½ to 1 T unsalted butter
  • 1 to 2 T olive oil
  • 1 T chopped garlic or shallots
  • 1 head (3-4 cups of leaves) tat soi or any other dark leafy green, base removed (tear into smaller pieces if using a large leaf plant like chard)
  • soy sauce

Procedure[edit]

  1. Rinse greens thoroughly.
  2. Melt butter and olive oil in a wok or sauté pan over medium-high heat.
  3. Add garlic and sauté until golden.
  4. Stir in tat soi and cook - stirring constantly - until lightly wilted.
  5. Remove from heat and cover, allowing the greens to steam in the pan for a minute or two.
  6. When ready to serve, toss with about 1T of soy sauce.
