DIRECTIONS

  • Use a sharp knife to cut out the central rib and stem from each collard leaf. Rinse the leaves in a sink of cool water, lifting them into a colander to drain a bit (you want some water to remain on the leaves).
  • Toast the pine nuts over medium heat in a dry skillet for about 5 minutes or until golden.
  • Shake the pan often to keep the pine nuts from burning. Transfer to a plate, and set aside.
  • Place the garlic and oil in a large skillet, and saute over medium heat for 1 minute or until the garlic is fragrant.
  • Add the damp collards and stir, then cover the pan and cook for 2 minutes longer.
  • Add the raisins and pine nuts, and stir. Cover and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Stir in the balsamic vinegar, cover, and continue to cook for 1 to 2 minutes longer.
