Here is an incredibly minimalist way to deal with tender greens. What is so good about this is that you can taste every single ingredient yet its a very subtle dish.

Take the time to look for proper, fresh ricotta from an Italian deli. If you’re stuck with the bland stuff from supermarkets, spice it up. Add a tablespoon or so of grated Parmesan or Pecorino, or simply season it. As for leaves, my ideal mix is all wild: nettles (blanched), wild garlic and wild rocket (the spiky-leafed kind). But you can use anything from baby spinach to young red chard.
