Greens w/ Peanut Butter

There's not much training happening, so that leaves more time for cooking! I'm heading towards the end of the Fall/Winter Doe Run Farm CSA but I've been enjoying copious amounts of greens, lettuce, winter squashes, and sweet potatoes over the last 6 weeks. So although I've missed documenting plenty of goodness, some is better than nothing.

For this recipe, I used 1 bunch of mustard greens plus half of a bunch of swiss chard. The mustards have a pretty strong bite raw but are balanced nicely with the peanut butter and raisins.

1-2 bunches greens, roughly chopped (mustard or collards work best)
1 onion, chopped
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp ground corriander
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/8 tsp salt
2-3 T peanut butter
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup water

In a large saute pan, add EVOO and bring to medium-high heat. Add the onion and saute for 5 min until almost translucent. Add the garlic and saute for another minute. Add corriander, cumin, cloves, salt, and greens. Add water and mix everything together, cooking the greens. After a minute or two the greens should begin to wilt. Add peanut butter and rasins and mix to loosen peanut butter. Remove from heat and continue mixing so that peanut butter is evenly distributed. Enjoy!
