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
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.
