Quick Cooked Greens with Bacon and Black-Eyed Peas
Why This Recipe Works
For our quick cooked greens recipe, we wanted to rid these greens of some of their bitterness, but not all of it. A shallow blanching removed enough bitterness to make these assertive greens palatable but not so much as to rob them of their character. Once assertive greens had been shallow-blanched, they could be cooked in five minutes with bacon and black-eyed peas for a quick side dish.
