Well, magical probably not, but they are darned good for your body and your taste buds.   At the recommendation of a jolly man at the market today, I cooked my Swiss Chard this evening and added nutritional yeast at the end to make Creamed Greens. Oh man, I just entered  a whole new world.  I imagine this recipe would work with all cooking greens.  Here is the recipe I made up, but absolutely tweak it to your taste.

1lb Swiss Chard, Beet Tops, Turnip Greens, Kale, Collards, etc.  washed and torn into bite sized pieces.

1 tbsp olive oil

1 leek/ or bunch of scallions chopped

1/2 tsp lemon pepper (optional)

1/2 tsp porcini mushroom powder (optional)

1/2 tsp allspice

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

1 tbsp soy sauce

1/4 cup water

1/2 cup nutritional yeast

1 tsp cornstarch mixed with 2tbsp water

Heat large pan to low/medium, add olive oil, heat, then add spices and leek/scallions.  Cook for a few minutes, until scallions begin to wilt.  Add swiss chard, soy sauce, water and cover for 5 minutes to steam.  Remove lid and continue to cook until wilted.  Add nutritional yeast, mix, add cornstarch, mix and let sauce thicken.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Yum.
