So delicious! I've never had collards in my life, but I used them in this recipe and wow! I love them! I used an old coffee bean grinder to grind up my fennel seeds for this recipe. My DH couldn't get over how much he loved this dish! What a hit, thanks for posting! Made for Aussie Swap :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make bullion according to package directions. Typically, this means that you add one bullion cube to 2 cups water and heat to low simmer. Prepare in a large nonstick pot.
  2. Add the fennel and garlic and stir.
  3. Immediately add greens to simmering liquid.
  4. "Roll" greens around in water to coat with spices and let simmer until just wilted, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  5. Do not overcook greens. They should be wilted, but still brightly colored. Greens will "shrink" significantly when they cook.
  6. Use a slotted spoon to remove greens into a bowl or serving dish or onto plates or bowls. Let liquid drain a bit before putting greens into dish.
  7. Enjoy greens steaming hot.
