DIRECTIONS

  • Fill large bowl with cold tap water.
  • Soak collard greens in water, take out, and then rinse.
  • Do this several times until no dirt is at bottom of bowl after washing.
  • Rip thick stem from center of greens (its OK if a little thin stem is left).
  • I usually accomplish this by folding green in half with stem sticking straight up, and ripping down and towards me.
  • Chop onions and fry over medium heat in a deep frying pan for a few minutes.
  • In the meantime, chop or tear collard greens into pieces and its okay.
  • if they're big pieces, as they will shrink.
  • Add greens to onions, and then add chopped garlic (as desired) and salt (and pepper if desired) on top of them.
  • Cover and reduce heat to low.
  • Let steam a few minutes.
  • Check frequently and stir.
  • The key to good collard greens is to not undercook them!!!
  • Stir frequently and cover between stirrings.
