Typically, steaming is the best way to cook fresh green leafy veggies, but most of them don't have much protein...... you need to check that out.

Typically, beans, whole grains, nuts/seeds, soy, meats, eggs, etc will have the most protein.  Leafy greens contain calcium, iron, magnesium and other nutrients.

Thanks a lot for your advice. Similarly, i tried steaming and it was good even though it was tasteless but my mother told me it was the best. I am starting to cope with cooking and thanks again.

I like to steam them but also sauté them.  A little balsamic vinegar and some fresh spinach is delicious!  

I cook swiss chard in no fat chicken broth.  I basically boil it in the broth.  I've sauted peppers (orange, red, yellow) and added it.  Looks fancy and really does taste good.

I like to saute swiss chard, as well.  I buy the rainbow type, because it's so colorful.

Bheja - if your veggies are tasteless, add some herbs/spices, vinegar (as suggested by SM), lemon juice, olive oil, etc to pick them up a little bit. Experiment with small amounts until you find combinations you like.

Forgot to mention - you can also add onion or garlic for more flavor.
