• 1 bunch amaranth greens (vlita)
  • salt
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 TBSP Vinegar

Cooking directions

  • Fill a very large bowl with water and the vinegar. Add the greens and let them soak for about 30 minutes.
  • Remove them and discard the water. Rinse the greens twice, ensure they are no longer sandy or dirty.
  • Cut off the thicker stems as they require a longer boiling time.
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  • Add the stems and cook for 6 minutes. Now add the remaining greens (thin stems and leaves) to the water and cook for 3-4 minutes.
  • Empty the vlita into a colander and immediately rinse with cold water.
  • To serve, toss with lemon juice and olive oil.
  • Bon Appétit.
