Sautéed Leafy Greens

Sauteed Leafy Greens via #paleo #grainfree

It’s been a busy week. A family member was very sick, so I spent most of my week in Texas helping provide care. What a privilege to spend precious time with family, cooking soups, organic, grass-fed meats, and all sorts of leafy greens! We all enjoyed this simple, leafy green recipe. The greens are rich in vitamin C, the butter helps the body assimilate the nutrients from the vegetables and the Celtic sea salt adds over eighty minerals. A powerhouse of nutrients in just a few bites! It’s a great dish to serve alongside roasted meat or fish, or if you really love your vegetables, a bowl of this for dinner makes for a simple and delightful vegetarian meal.

Sautéed Leafy Greens

Serving Size: Serves 4

Sautéed Leafy Greens


  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
 or ghee
  • 1 large red onion, minced

  • 2 bunches leafy greens (Chard, Kale, Collard Greens, Etc.), chopped

  • 1 teaspoon Celtic sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons creme fraiche (you can substitute with sour cream or mascarpone cheese)

  • Freshly ground black pepper


Melt butter in a large saute pan over medium heat. Add onion and saute until just beginning to caramelize, about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to boil. Add chopped greens to the boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Drain and squeeze excess water out of greens.

Add greens and sea salt to onion mixture and toss until hot. Stir in creme fraiche. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve.

    Just happened upon your blog and enjoyed reading about your food journey. I’ve already printed off one of your recipes and am heading to the store to buy the ingredients. Just wondered if you’ve considered including nutritional info in your recipes? Thanks!

      I’m glad you are enjoying the site! I purposely leave the nutritional info off because my goal is to help others learn to choose organic, unprocessed foods instead of counting calories and such. I feel we now look at food and think how much vitamins, minerals, fat, calories, etc. are in the foods instead of making the priority to eat real food, just as our ancestors did.

      It seems like a great creme fraiche. I make my own by combining 1 cup whipping cream with 2 tablespoons buttermilk. You let it sit for 24 hours at room temperature, stir and you’re done!
