A simple collard green recipe represents cajun cooking. Found in a regional cookbook.


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Blanch the collards, then shock them in ice water. Sqeeze out the excess water.
  2. Melt the butter in a saute pan and add the greens. Season with salt and pepper and heat through. Serve with a sqeeze of lemon.

This is a nice, simple way to prepare collards. I'm used to cooking them for a very long time, so this was quite unique to me. The lemon juice really brightened up the fresh collard greens I got at the farm. Made by a Tasty Tester for ZWT 9.
