Lime Cumin Greens with Apricots

Lunch today:

1 large bag of greens (they filled up the salad spinner) torn into 3 inch pieces (chard, kale, spinach etc)
1 heaping cup of fresh apricots roughly cut
1 onion roughly cut
1 tbls honey
1/4 cup white wine
1 tbls butter
1/2 cup walnuts crumbled
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1 scant tsp. cumin seeds
juice of one lime

Wash and spin the greens. Set aside
In a pot, a couple of glugs of olive oil. Add onions, apricots and spices. Sautee for 5 minutes and then add the white wine and lime juice. Sautee on med. high heat for another 3 minutes and then add the butter and honey. When the apricots have started to fall apart and the juices are reduced, add the greens and sautee for another 8 minutes, or until their released juices have thickened and the greens are wilted. Add walnuts and combine.
I love the sweet, lime and cumin together. The tart of the apricots lends very well to the lime flavor and the cumin. It took me less than 15 min. to prepare.

Hi Jessica!
I also followed a link from Heidi's page, and was drawn by the name of this recipe!
Your recipes all sound great - so glad you said hi to Heidi!
I love kale, and have been using it in green smoothies this week. I'm keen to try your recipe kale pesto.
Your beautiful five year old will grow even more beautiful, especially with the benefit of a waldorf education.

Cheers, Jane

Just tried these Lime Cumin Greens with Apricots. They are out of this world good. A really great mix of flavors! I only had dried apricot but these seem to work fine -- just need to add a little more wine to get them to break down. I put them on top of a bed of mixed grains.
