Tasty Frozen Collard Greens

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Debbwl

Was looking for a low fat and healthy way to fix Collard greens that DH would eat as all the low fat version we had tried always left him saying its ok although a bit too spice. This recipe has a very slight sweet under tone which I believe comes from the sweet onion and the Sriracha chili sauce.

What a hit! I'm very happy when I find recipes for greens where they aren't cooked (boiled) to death. I *did* use fresh collards & just left out the water. Perfect! Maybe even a little on the spicy side but then again, I eyeballed that TB of sriracha! Thanks! Made for Culinary Quest 2014/Cruisin' Culinary Queens xo Bethie/elmotoo
