Maple Collard Greens

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Suzy_Q

This is my own recipe. This is what I think all collard greens should taste like. The fresher the collards used the more tender and quick cooking they'll be. If they are "elderly" as my great-grandmother would say, you will have to cook them longer as they will be tougher. Wonderful with BBQ tempeh, mac & cheese and corn bread.

I don't normally cook collard greens but received a bunch in my organic veggie box this week and thought this recipe looked interesting. Hubby is not a fan of greens but he gobbled his up without complaint. I used olive oil and next time will use a dash of white balsamic at the end the next time to balance the sweetness. Thanks for this healthy yet yummy recipe!

  1. Heat butter or oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add onions. While onions are cooking wash collards leaving them damp. After about 5 minutes when onions are lightly browned add collards and cover pan with a lid. After about 5 minutes add maple syrup, BBW sauce, a pinch of salt and a few dashes of pepper. Mix together and cook covered over medium for about 10-15 minutes or until greens are tender.
