A simple collard green recipe represents cajun cooking. Found in a regional cookbook.
- 2 bunches collard greens, cut in 1/2 in strips
- 1 1⁄2 ounces butter
- salt, to taste
- black pepper, to taste
- lemon juice, to taste
- Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Blanch the collards, then shock them in ice water. Sqeeze out the excess water.
- 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.
Easy and good with the lemon juice. Made for ZWT#9 by team Hot Stuff!
