    Default Broccoli and spinach - for cheap


    Those are the only dark greens available at the stores in my town, so
    I'm looking to make them taste good. However, I'm not rich, and I don't
    have gas until the month after next. In short, I'm looking to make
    something without oils (they cost a lot here) and without cooking from
    spinach and/or broccoli.

    Can someone help me think of something, so it would taste at least half
    good?

    Thanks!

    Oh boy, another Foodbanter Troll!

    You betcha, I can (and do) cook broccoli and spinach "for cheap" "here". It
    tastes better than "half good", too.

    You're a loser. Face it. Life isn't going
    to get any better for you. It will be a downward
    slide for the remainder of your pitiful life.
    Have you considered crime? For most people,
    the threat of imprisonment is a real downside.
    But for you, jail would be an improvement.
    They feed you in jail. It's not great food,
    but it's better than raw broccoli.

    I think people don't think I'm serious. I am. Otherwise I'd be spamming
    other threads. Since I'm not, and I'm not picking on those who think I'm
    "trolling," I think that's proof enough that I'm asking this question
    seriously.

    I'm confused. What's the question here?

    Broccoli can be easily steamed in a sealed container with some minced
    garlic and a little bit of water. I usually do mine for 2 minutes in the
    microwave.

    Spinach on the other hand needs a little fat. Just a little olive oil,
    perhaps a little garlic and a little lemon.

    Well, seems like around here, most people are complete assholes. Guess
    it's "just one of these forums."

    Thanks, I'll keep that in mind. It seems relatively cheap. Can't do it
    now though, as mentioned in the OP.

    The problem is you think this is a "forum".

    It's your problem if you can't figure out to steam broccoli or saute spinach
    with garlic. How about you read a cookbook? We're not here to teach you
    how to cook.
