Recipe by jenne

Recipe from Whole Foods. States, "Creamy coconut milk combined with fresh lemon juice adds just the right flavor to brighten up vitamin-rich, dark leafy greens. Substitute kale or mustard greens for the collard greens, if you like."

I had some coconut milk left from Easter and looked specifically for recipes using this milk. I used frozen greens and had it as a side with Gourmet Grits Casserole and fruit salad. This was good and different as a side dish. Next time I might add some pinto beans or black eyed peas. Thanks for your recipe.
