Ingredients

  • ¼ cup butter vegan butter, or avocado oil
  • cup garlic minced
  • cup ginger minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ⅛ to ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ¼ cup liquid aminos or soy sauce
  • ¾ cup vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon sugar optional
  • 5 cups broccoli florets
  • 4 cups kale cut up
  • 3 cups green cabbage chopped

Instructions

  • Melt the butter or heat up the oil in a wok set over medium high heat.  Saute the garlic and ginger for 1 minute, stirring with a wooden spoon.  Add the spices and let them bloom for 30 seconds to 1 minute while stirring constantly.  Set the mixture aside in a bowl.
  • Stir the liquid aminos or soy sauce together with the vegetable broth, then pour it in the wok.  If you want your super greens with a touch of sweetness, sprinkle in the sugar and stir until it dissolves.
  • Add the broccoli florets, kale, and cabbage to the wok. Cook for 6 minutes, stirring constantly, until the veggies are tender but still crisp.
  • Add the melted butter and aromatics mixture and stir until everything is well coated.
  • Serve warm with a side of rice, rice noodles, or ramen.

Notes

  • This recipe tastes better with butter instead of vegan butter or avocado oil.
  • If you want this sweeter, add 1 tablespoon of sweetener, such as sugar or maple syrup.
  • If you want this for a main meal, add a protein such as tofu, chickpeas, walnuts, cashews, chicken, beef, or shrimp.
