Two Sorts Of 'Greens', Three Different Ways

Dear All,

Today I cooked some Brussel Sprouts, in with some Greens. However I took some, Darker 'Outer' leaves, along with the Lighter 'Inner' ones. I was careful, to remove any 'bad' bits, before also cutting out the 'harder' stalks. Next I prepared some Brussel Sprouts, and put then in some slightly salted water (I use Malden Sea Salt myself), in a fairly large saucepan. Next I Tore the 'Greens' leaves, this technique can release more flavour, and added these to the pot before pouring over Boiling Water. I then brought them 'back' to the boil, about two minutes, before cooking them fully. I placed some Chipolata Sausages, under the Grill, when put the Vegetables on to boil.

When the 'Greens' were done, and the Chipolatas nearly so, I made some gravy using the Veg water. I severed the Chipolatas, Boiled Potatoes and the Greens, all at the same time.... Yum, YumπŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹. The Different Textures, and flavours, were Amazing.

A Very Good Meal, and easy to make too.

I use 'Gravy Granules' and Simply, make the gravy, using the Veg. water....Easy. Just, be careful, and DON'T put too much Salt in the Vegetables😫.
