DIRECTIONS

  • Wash and cut all of the collard greens into bite size pieces (about 2" x 2").
  • Heat some coconut oil in a tall pot until it's hot but NOT smoking hot.
  • Add the collard greens and stir. CAUTION: the collard greens will splatter in the oil when they are first put in, so be careful.
  • Stir and continue to cook until the greens wilt down.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cook until done and at the very end add a splash of balsamic vinegar. Be sure and stir as the balsamic vinegar can burn. You don't need much of the vinegar.
  • Note: This is a good base recipe to experiment with. The greens are also good when cooked with ginger and tamari, or you can add a mix of balsamic vinegar, orange juice, and hot pepper at the end. I have done all of these and they all taste great. I think the coconut oil really does a lot for the greens.
