Greens and Orzo Stir Fry
serves 4

What you need: 
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 cups shredded purple cabbage
1 large bunch greens, cleaned, dried and roughly chopped (great with any hearty greens –mustard, dinosaur kale, turnip, collard etc…)
8 ounces orzo, cooked al dente
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
1 teaspoon chili oil
Sea Salt

What to do:
1. Place a wok over high heat and heat to very hot. Add canola oil and bring to a shimmer. Stir in cabbage and cook stirring for 2 minutes. Add in turnip greens and cook stirring until just starting to wilt. Stir in orzo, sesame oil and chili oil. Cook stirring for 3 minutes. Liberally salt. Serve immediately.

Variation: Stir in 2 cups of shredded chicken or poached salmon at the end if you like, or place a piece of grilled salmon on top. DELIGHTFUL!
