½ cup butter
1 cup finely chopped dandelion leaves
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon minced chives
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoons flour
4 cups milk
1. Melt butter: add greens, herbs and seasonings. Sauté for about 10 minutes to cook greens, stirring constantly. Leaves will shrink and soften.
2. Sprinkle in flour, stirring to coat greens evenly. Cook about 5 minutes.
3. Stir in milk, cooking over low heat until smooth. Simmer until greens are tender, approximately 5 minutes. Serve hot.
