I Made Greens Taste Like Cherry Pie

This is definitely going on the Thanksgiving menu. It tastes like cherry pie filling which is amazing and surprising.

  • Onion, chopped
  • 2 slices bacon, diced
  • garlic
  • chopped radish (like 5 radishes)
  • Sweet Vermouth
  • Big bunch of kale, washed, stems removed
  • Head of frise lettuce from my garden (yes I found time to clear the old plot and throw some see down).
  • Radish greens


This is mostly kale and frise, mostly kale really.

Cook bacon in a big saute pan. Add onion, garlic and radish chunks. Cook for 10 minutes or so.

Deglaze with about a cup of sweet vermouth! I think this is key to the cherry pie flavor.

Add the greens and some salt. Cover and cook on medium for about 10-15 minutes (until greens are tender).

Mix it all up and eat with anything.

Seriously, cherry pie.
