Cajun Collard Greens | Dinner

Like Brussels sprouts and kimchi, collard greens are one of those

foods folks tend to either love or hate. They’re highly nutritious, so

hopefully this hot and spicy recipe will turn you into a lover if you’re

not already.


1 onion, diced

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 pound collard greens, chopped

2 tablespoons olive oil

3/4 cup water or Vegetable Broth

1 (14-ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained

1 1/2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning

1/2 teaspoon hot sauce

1/4 teaspoon salt


1. In a large skillet, sauté onion, garlic, and collard greens in olive oil for

3–5 minutes until onion is soft.

2. Add water or Vegetable Broth, tomatoes, and Cajun seasoning. Bring

to a simmer, cover, and allow to cook for 20 minutes, or until greens are

soft, stirring occasionally.

3. Remove lid, stir in hot sauce and salt, and cook, uncovered, for

another 1–2 minutes to allow excess moisture to evaporate.
