Spicy Steamed Greens with Hemp Seeds

Steamed greens with tamari, chili and fresh garlic is my go-to option when I want something light and easy. You can have these greens as a side dish at lunch or dinner — this dish is low in calories, high in micronutrients and plant compounds and will satisfy you quickly.
