Citrus Splash for Greens


H3's Citrus Splash for Greens (www.h3daily.com):

This is an awesome recipe for a warm citrus splash to be served with greens such as spinach, rabe, or arugula. Really, any pungent greens will go well with this. This recipe is great with summer just around the corner- the perfect combination of heat and citrus!

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon shallots, minced
2 teaspoons garlic, minced
•1 teaspoon olive oil
•1/2 cup orange juice (I used fresh squeezed)
•Pinch of red pepper flakes
•2 tablespoons orange zest, finely chopped

Directions:

•Saute shallots and garlic in olive oil for minutes. 
•Add juice, peppers, and zest; simmer slowly for 10 minutes. Reserve
•I used a manual juicer and it worked just fine- no need to dirty up your electric juicer




 H3 says this is 4 servings and that the serving size is 1/2 a cup. After putting about 2 tablespoons on my greens (above), this is all I had left:



So, you might want to double this recipe if you are serving multiple people, or just want to make extra to store.
