Mixed Greens Stir-Fry

Makes 6 serving
Yields about 3 cups total

POINTS® value | 0 per serving


· 3 sprays cooking spray, olive oil-variety recommended

· 1 1/2 tsp olive oil

· 3/4 lb baby spinach

· 3/4 lb baby arugula

· 1/2 tsp sea salt

· 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper, or more to taste

· 1/4 tsp sugar

· 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar


· Coat a large pot with cooking spray and place over medium-high heat; heat oil until shimmering. Add spinach and arugula; cook until just wilted, turning greens over with tongs from the bottom of the pot to the top, about 1 to 3 minutes. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, sugar and vinegar; stir and heat through, about 30 seconds. Yields about 1/2 cup per serving.


· How to make it faster: Use reduced-calorie Italian or vinaigrette dressing instead of salt, pepper and vinegar (could affect POINTS values).

Any combination of leafy greens will work: beet greens, Swiss chard, kale, collards, mustard greens, etc.
