photo by Anne Sainz
- Ready In:
- 1hr 5mins
- 16 ounces collard greens, tough stems removed, leaves chopped
- 1 tablespoon garlic, minced or 3 garlic cloves
- 1 1⁄2 cups diced onions or 1 large onion
- 2 cups sliced mushrooms or 6 -8 mushrooms
- 1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
- 1 (15 ounce) can fire-roasted tomatoes
- 1⁄4 cup raisins
- 1 (15 ounce) can low-sodium chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground coriander (or to taste)
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon (or to taste)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cumin (or to taste)
- 1⁄8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1⁄2 teaspoon oil (to coat pan)
- Wash, stem and chop the collards and set aside. The easiest way to do this is to work from the back of the leaf. Slice down each side of the stem and put leaves in a pile. Roll and slice thinly crosswise, then slice diagonally into 1 to 2 inch pieces.
- Mince garlic, onions, mushrooms and red bell pepper. Combine and set aside.
- Combine tomatoes, raisins, chickpeas and spices and set aside.
- Coat large covered non-stick frying pan or Dutch oven (at least 5 quarts) with oil. Add garlic, onions, mushrooms and bell pepper. Cook and stir until onion is soft and translucent, adding small amounts of water as needed to prevent sticking.
- Add collards and small amount of water if needed to prevent sticking. Cover and allow collards to wilt, mixing frequently.
- Add tomato mixture and continue cooking, stirring frequently for about 5 to 7 minutes or until collards are tender but still nice and bright.

In 2011, I saw a PBS Special, 3 Steps to Incredible Health by Dr. Joel Fuhrman. It inspired me to change to a Nutritarian cooking style, which focuses on the nutrient density of the foods you eat. Since that time, I have been collecting recipes. I have found a few recipes ready to go but most of them were either too complicated for everyday use or needed some changes to fit with this eating style.
