Best dish ever? Really?

So dinner tonight consisted of lentils, rice, and coconut greens. The rice was just rice. The lentils, boiled in water with a glob of margarine and salt until the water is all absorbed. But the greens were the show stopper. I was surprised that everyone gobbled them up to the point where there were no left overs and people were pissed! Here it is, my recipe for coconut greens.

1 bunch of kale torn
1 bunch chard chopped
1 cup diced carrots
1 can of coconut milk
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 a medium onion chopped
2-3 cloves of garlic minced
1 tsp tumeric
1 tsp red chili flakes
2 tsp salt

Boil kale and carrots in a big pot of water for about 6 minutes. While it's boiling, saute the garlic and onion in oil in a skillet. add chili flakes and tumeric to the onion and garlic. Saute for about 1 minute. Add can of coconut milk and simmer. Now add the chard to the kale and carrots. Boil for about 3 minutes more. Drain the carrots, kale and chard and return to the pot. Add the coconut milk mixture to the kale mixture and stir it all together. That's it folks. Enjoy!
