    I am new to collard greens. Any how just 1/4 cup of olive oil no h20. Just seems like a lot of greens for 1/4 cup oil Thanks

    We have vegetarians in our family and it's hard to find a good collard greens recipe that doesn't have bacon in it. Well, I think we finally found one! I used minced garlic because it's what I had on hand and I doubled it because we love garlic. I also threw a little extra onion in. DD didn't like them at all but DH and I both enjoyed them.

    These were very good. They had a very different flavor than my normal bacon and onion greens, and I liked the acidity from the tomatoes. The thyme also added great flavor. Would make these again.
