Moroccan Mallow Salad with Lemon Juice and Olives - Bakoula

Common mallow (khoubiza or bakoula) grows wild in Morocco, and it's not unusual to see people gathering the leaves from fields.. They're also sold in large bunches in the markets . The leaves are chopped, steamed and then sauteed with olive oil, spices, olives and preserved lemons. The resulting cooked salad is eaten as a dip with Moroccan bread.
I Used in here some Greens and spinach leaves since i don't have any mallow so The nutrition is high and the result is the Same.  

Ingredients :

1/2 lb. (250 g) mallow leaves or a Mix of Collar Greens and spinach, stems removed (about 8 cups, packed)
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup chopped parsley or cilantro, or a mix
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped or pressed
1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons cumin
1/2 teaspoons salt, or more to taste
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 to 2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 handful of red or Green olives


1- Wash the mallow or the Greens and spinach leaves Mix very well several times in a large bowl of water. Drain thoroughly. Finely chop the leaves, place them in a steamer, and steam over simmering water for 15 to 20 minutes, until the leaves darken and are tender.

2- Squeeze out any excess liquid from the steamed leaves, and transfer them to a skillet. Add the remaining ingredients (except for the olives), stir to mix, and saute over medium heat for 5 to 10 minutes, until the parsley is wilted and the flavors have blended. Adjust seasoning if desired.

3- Serve warm or at room temperature, garnishing the salad with the olives and preserved lemon rinds if u have any.
