I’ve been hearing about coconut oil for a while now and didn’t know what to think. I saw a tweet asking bloggers to contact Tropical Traditions for blog reviews. Oh yeah!
I asked some friends who use coconut oil how they use it. They told me they use it as a substitute for all oils and butter. Really?! I was skeptical. I LOVE butter. I’m from Georgia, y’all. Butter is a food group. So is bacon grease, but that’s another story.
I decided to fix me up a messa greens. I used coconut oil to sauté them babies. Here we have mustard greens, collards, and two kinds of kale, all organic, from Harmon’s.
I sautéed up some chopped onions, minced garlic, and bacon chunks. In the coconut oil. Then I tossed in the chopped greens to wilt. Add a pinch of salt and a dash of lemon juice, a little twist of the grind of nutmeg. Voilà!
They were divine. They’re usually greasy with butter and/or olive oil. These were better than perfect. Light and clean.
