   12       c            Mixed greens -- such as
                         - Mustard, Arugula,
                         - Watercress, Dandelion,
                         - Kale, Spinach, Chard,
                         - Escarole or others
    4       lg           Garlic cloves
                         Salt
    2       lg           Handfuls Italian parsley
                         -(leaves), chopped finely
    1                    Handfuls cilantro leaves,
                         - (or more), chopped finely
    3       tb           Fruity olive oil
    2       ts           Paprika
    2       ts           Ground cumin
    1                    Lemon -- cut in wedges
 
   MAKE A MIXTURE OF GREENS TO SUIT your taste. Cut away the stems and stalks
   and wash the leaves. Set the greens in a steamer, with the tougher greens
   on the bottom. Cover and steam until tender, about 10 minutes. Or, cook
   each type of green separately in boiling, salted water, until done. Let
   cool a few minutes in a colander, then squeeze out the extra liquid and
   chop roughly. Pound the garlic and 1/2 teaspoon salt together in a mortar
   until finely broken down, then add the parsley and cilantro and continue
   working until you have a rough paste. Or, combine the garlic, salt and
   herbs in a food processor and work until everything is fine. You may need
   to add a little olive oil. Warm the olive oil with the paprika and cumin.
   When it begins to smell good, add the herb paste and mix the 2 together.
   Next add the greens and cook everything together for a minute or so until
   any excess moisture has evaporated. Taste and season with salt, if
   necessary. Pile into a serving dish and garnish with the wedges of lemon.
