This was another recipe that came with our CSA box from Telltale Farm. We made something vaguely similar to this a while back with broccoli so I was eager to try these. Overall, I don't think they are very attractive but they are delicious!
You will need:
2 bunches leaves of mixed greens (we used collards and kale!)
2-3 garlic gloves, finely chopped
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup cheese, grated
2/3 cup fresh breadcrumbs, plus extra
Salt and Pepper
What you do:
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Salt the water and then add the greens in order of coarseness. Cook until just wilted, no more than a minute or ninety seconds. Drain thoroughly. Allow the greens to cool, and then roughly chop.
In a mixing bowl, combine the greens, garlic, eggs, cheese, pepper, and approximately half of the breadcrumbs. If the mixture is too wet to form cakes, gradually add more bread crumbs until it is possible to mold the mixture. Form small patties, roughly the size of a small hamburger, and set aside.
Over medium heat, cover the bottom of a cast-iron skillet or nonstick pan with oil. Add a few of the cakes to the pan, being careful not to overcrowd it. Cook for approximately five minutes, or until browned, flip the cakes and cook an additional five minutes to brown the other side. Repeat until cakes are cooked.
