How to make this recipe
In a large bowl, combine the shallots, lemongrass, kaffir lime leaf, lime juice, coconut oil and soy sauce. Season the <em>sambal matah</em> with salt.
Bring an inch of water to a boil in a large pot fitted with a steamer. Steam the greens until wilted and tender, about 3 minutes. Transfer the greens to the large bowl. Add the oil and <em>sambal matah</em> and toss to coat. Season with salt.
