Greek Style Stewed Greens With Zucchini (Horta Kolokythia Vrasta) Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 pound small zucchini
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1 teaspoon dried Greek oregano

How to Make Stewed Greens With Zucchini:

Prepare the ladolemono according to the instructions in the recipe. Set aside.

Rinse the greens in a colander and add them to a large pot. Add the water, cover the pot, and set the heat on the burner to low. Cook them about four minutes, tossing them once about halfway through. Transfer to a serving bowl when done.

While the greens cook, add the zucchini to a pot of boiling water and cook them uncovered in the pan until tender. This should take about 5 minutes. Drain the zucchini and transfer it to a serving bowl.

Sprinkle the tomato on top of the other ingredients. Pour the prepared ladolemono over the mixture, and then garnish with the oregano.
