Collard greens, poor people’s sushi (sardines with sea salt, black pepper, lemon juice on flax bread), salad with strawberries and vinaigrette.

Sauteed Collard Greens adapted from Epicurious

2 1/2 pounds collard greens
3 garlic cloves
1/2 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice, or to taste
sea salt, black pepper, garlic powder

Remove and discard stems and center ribs of collard greens. Cut leaves into 1-inch pieces. In a kettle of boiling water cook collards 15 minutes and drain in a colander, pressing out excess liquid with back of a wooden spoon.

Mince garlic. In a 12-inch heavy skillet heat butter and oil over moderately high heat until foam subsides and stir in garlic, collards, and salt and pepper to taste. Sauté collard mixture, stirring, until heated through, about 5 minutes.

Drizzle collards with lemon juice and toss well.
