Using an assortment of greens ranging from sweet to slightly bitter makes for a delicious vegetable dish. Experiment with different combinations. The recipe below uses Savoy cabbage for sweetness and mustard greens for their slight bitterness. To tip the scale a little more on the bitter side, you could use broccoli rabe instead. Use a fresh batch of water for each green, so that each vegetable maintains its individual flavor.
You can reduce the preparation time to 40 minutes by using 3 separate pots and cooking the vegetables simultaneously.
