Simple Sauteed Braising Mix Recipe

Total Time: 15 minutes

Yield: Serves 2-4

If you really want to make these greens a meal, saute some bacon or pancetta first, then use the rendered fat in place of the oil. Decadent and healthy at the same time.


  • 2 Tbsp peanut oil
  • 1 medium white onion or shallot, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ pound Braising mix (or make your own)
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • ¼ cup stock or water
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • Salt and pepper


  1. In a large, high-sided sauté pan, heat oil over medium high heat. 
  2. When shimmering add onions and cook until translucent, about 3-4 minutes. 
  3. Add garlic and sauté briefly, stirring quickly to avoid browning, about 30 seconds. 
  4. Add in braising mix, tossing to mix. 
  5. Sprinkle with paprika and add stock, covering and reducing heat to low. Cook until lightly wilted, about another 3-4 minutes. 
  6. Remove from heat and sprinkle with lemon juice, season with salt and pepper and serve.
