Collard greens and red beans

READY IN: 32mins
Recipe by Hey Jude

Another Kwanzaa recipe that needs a home on Zaar. This is very tart, reduce the vinegar if you prefer. Found in Chicago Tribune, I haven't tried this yet.

Very good recipe! I have had an overwhelming amount of collards that I have been trying to eat so I can prepare my AZ soil for spring gardening. This is one of the top 3 favorite recipes for them! The kidney beans really add nice flavor.
