Collards Recipes

Braised Greens

Three strips of bacon (optional)
One medium-sized onion - diced
3 cloves of garlic - minced
One or two large bunches of *your choice of greens - chopped
2 tsp each: garlic powder, onion powder, turmeric, coriander, cumin
1 tbsp tomato paste (optional)
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup of any stock or broth
Salt and pepper to taste

If using bacon, place into a pan on medium heat and cook until crispy, remove to paper toweled plate. Sauteé onion in bacon grease (or olive oil) until it starts to turn translucent, add the garlic and all the seasonings. Stir toasting the seasonings for about 30-45 seconds. Add the greens and toss in the pan coating the leaves. When the greens are bright green, add the apple cider vinegar, stock and tomato paste. Stir. Cover and let braise on low temp for 10 minutes. Check and stir. Continue cooking with the lid on until the greens are very tender. Crumble up the bacon (if using) and stir it into the mixture. Serve warm with rice or bread.

*Nature & Nurture's suggestion ~ We recommend collard greens, kale, mustard greens, or other greens of your choice.
