    I was looking for a recipe for greens that didn't use bacon and came across this one and I'm glad I did! I used collard greens and didn't have rice vinegar, so I used red wine vinegar. It turned out very good!Thanks!

    Excellent! I used 1/2 of the paste and vinegar on one bunch of greens.

    The only flavor that really came through was the vinegar. Probably needs more garlic and chili paste than the recipe says. Ours was also very bitter, but that may have been due to the greens we used.

    I wanted to try a low-fat recipe for turnip greens. I love the ingredients in this recipe. The finished product is WONDERFUL!!!<br/>Thank you for a new un-guilty pleasure.

    I thought this was delicious, and I wouldn't change a thing. My boyfriend thought it had a little too much chili-garlic sauce, so if you don't like really spicy food, be warned. I ate this with a loaf of french bread; it was so good! Thanks for posting.

    Very good. I used a little bit of smoked hog jowl to render some fat instead of olive oil. I sauteed some onion and then added the garlic and cooked until almost brown before adding the rest of the stuff. I also simmered rather than boiling, since I read another recipe that said do not boil the greens. The result is great!

    SO GOOD!!!!! My husband and I loved this recipe, and we're going to try it on some other greens too. I didn't have chili paste so I sprikled a bit of cayenne pepper instead. Yum!!! Thanks for a great recipe.

    Great! These were the best greens I have ever made. So flavorful. However, my family insisted on bacon in their greens, so I substituted bacon for the chili paste. Next time I am making the recipe as is! Thanks, S'kat.
