Some New Greens...Quinoa and Ammaranth

Last week at my local Farmer's Market, I picked up some greens I've never cooked with before, quinoa and amaranth.  The farmer I purchased them from informed me that they would be great added to salads and also could be cooked up like any other green.  I washed them up, broke off their stems at the intersection with the leaf and tossed them in a pan.  Evaluation:  delicious!!

Sesame Greens

1 shallot chopped
1 clove garlic chopped
amaranth greens
quinoa greens
olive oil
sesame oil
sea salt
sesame seeds

Wash  and de-stem greens.  Remove quinoa flowers and seeds (see below).  Saute wet greens in a little olive oil.  When softened, pour on sesame oil, salt and pepper and top with sesame seeds.  

Remove the quinoa flowers.
