From The Muse Kitchen: Easy As Food Gets

Fresh Greens

This post from the muse kitchen shouldn't intimidate anyone. I am serious.

You really don't have to be adept at anything in the kitchen to pull this one off gang.

I am love, love, lovin' fresh greens.

In fact, I'm a little obsessed.

Ready for the ingredients for this recipe?

I swear, you don't even need to write it down.

That's it.

It's that simple.

I like mine with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Sometimes a touch of balsamic vinegar. Dash of salt and pepper and give me a biggo plate of the stuff.  It may not be Friday, but I'm in love.

I could eat this at every meal..

OK, so I have been eating this at every meal.

Got a problem with that?

This morning I had an egg on top.


Last night we had it with gnocchi and cheese on the side.

Yes, please.

Here's the bonus. 

Watercress is an anti-cancer superfood that can reduce damage to your cells. Bring it on. 

Arugula? Well, it's a rich source of certain phytochemicals, which also combat cancer causing elements in the body as well as being full of vitamins A, C, and K (which supports brain and bone health) and folic acid.  How very nice of you, arugula.

Frisee is also packed with Vitamin C and has antioxidant qualities which can reduce the risk of certain chronic diseases. How about an A to the M to the E to the N?

They are also all very low in calories.


Personally, all of that stuff is a bonus for me, because I just think they taste great.  Awesome bonus though, right?

Are you as obsessed with fresh greens as me (you can add kale and spinach to my list too) or am I getting my greens freak on all by myself?

What have you been lovin' in the kitchen lately?

Hope you have a fantastic Thursday filled with a ton of goodness like the fresh greens.

Ciao for now,


  1. I went out for a sandwich with a friend yesterday, and mine had lots of cress. I told her: I should get this myself, cause it tastes really good! So I added this to my shopping list :-) And I love that serving tray!

    1. great minds think alike. and who knew watercress packed such a power punch. here't the thing about the serving tray. it was my grams. it is what I would guess is chromeplated. but it got some deterioration areas that were rusted. bummed me out. so i painted it with chalkboard paint and I use it to write seasonal messages in my kitchen.

  2. So...I've,never seen arugula or watercress in Australian supermarkets....:(
