Collard Greens

I loooove collard greens. You don't need to make them with bacon. I have switched between using chicken stock or veggie stock. I like them both. I have also made this in my pressure cooker for 10 minutes or cooked them on the stove for 30 minutes to and hour. Read about what a perfect food this is:


a bunch of collard greens, chopped
2 teaspoons of roasted garlic
2 teaspoons of ground ginger
1Tablespoon olive oil
1 cup of broth (veggie or chicken)
1teaspoon of Nutmeg

Add olive oil to your pan and turn the heat on to medium high. Add the garlic and the ginger, stir for a minute. Add the chopped collard greens, nutmeg and stir the goodies for3 minutes. Add the stock, stir. When it comes to a boil (1 or 2 minutes) cover the pan and lower the heat. Simmer for 45 minutes. If you are making this in the pressure cooker, when you add the stock, lock the lid and when the pressure starts to whistle, lower the heat to maintain pressure and cook for 10 minutes. Quick release method.

  1. Thinly sliced onions, or shallots are a nice addition.
