    The Easy Vegan's Note:

    A lot of people are averse to trying dark leafy greens, believe me, I was too, as they were always described as "bitter". Now that I have had them though I love them, and only eat them like this (not fully cooked to sogginess or in soups). You get a lot of the flavor of the greens themselves and they make a great side dish to a "meat and potatoes" meal. You can substitute any mix of braising/dark leafy greens for the collards.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 cup collard greens, chopped
    • 1/2 garlic clove, minced (optional)
    • nonstick cooking spray or 1 teaspoon oil
    • salt and pepper

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Chop your greens into 1 inch strips that are no longer than 4 or 5 inches long (or you'll be getting a mouthful of stringy greens!). (I like to cut down the middle of the leaf and then put one half on top of the other and chop into strips).
    2. 2
      Rinse your greens (This is an important step! The water that stays on helps these cook to perfection).
    3. 3
      Heat your skillet to medium and spray or add oil, and garlic if wanted. Then just add your greens (these will shrink down a lot so you can do it in a small pan) and stir just until all greens have just turned bright green, usually not more than 3~ minutes.
    4. 4
      Turn up to medium-hot and fry for 30 more seconds or until greens are just tender.
    5. 5
      Toss with salt and pepper to taste (for this amount I usually use about 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper). Serve with your favorite entree :)!

      Yes, very simple and delicious. Gives one a whole new take on collard greens. The ribs were removed and then the leaves were stacked on top of each other, rolled cigar fashion and thinly sliced. I did saute half a onion in a touch of olive oil before adding the garlic and greens. Some hot sauce was served on the side. This one is a keeper. Made for PAC Fall 2011.
