Awesome Collard Greens

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by HollyLQuinn

This is a vegetarian recipe I've come up with, simply because I usually don't have the salt pork or hamhock traditionally included on hand. It's still got plenty of flavor!

This recipe is wonderful! I use any greens I can get my hands on: Collards, kale, and the large leaves off of several vegetables! I don't use nearly the salt the recipe calls for and I use a hot corn and black bean salsa. Since I'm getting my CSA, I'm making a large pot and going to freeze portions (greens freeze very well after cooked!)
