Sautéed Collard Greens and Bok Choy
Provided by: Chef Marcus Samuelsson
Ingredients6 slices bacon
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
4 garlic cloves, halved
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon grainy mustard
4 cups thinly sliced collard greens
4 cups very thinly sliced bok choy
Cook the bacon in a large skillet until crisp. Drain on paper towels, then crumble into small pieces.
Combine the oil and butter in a small saucepan, add the garlic, and bring to a simmer over low heat. Reduce the heat and cook for 10 minutes, or until the garlic is golden brown, taking care not to let it burn. Remove the garlic with a slotted spoon and set aside; reserve the oil.
In another small saucepan, bring the coconut milk and soy sauce to a boil. Remove from the heat, and stir in the mustard and bacon.
Heat 2 tablespoons of the reserved garlic oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add the collard greens and bok choy, and cook, stirring frequently, until the greens start to wilt. Stir in the coconut-milk mixture, and cook until the greens are tender and the sauce has thickened. Add reserved garlic.(Published 2007)
