What a hit! I'm very happy when I find recipes for greens where they aren't cooked (boiled) to death. I *did* use fresh collards & just left out the water. Perfect! Maybe even a little on the spicy side but then again, I eyeballed that TB of sriracha! Thanks! Made for Culinary Quest 2014/Cruisin' Culinary Queens xo Bethie/elmotoo
I used Avocado Oil (I just like it better than EVOO) and Better Than Bouillon/Vegetable rather than "just water" and tossed in a Tbsp. of Apple Cider Vinegar (as my ex-husband's Grandmother taught me to do). Served it as a "side" to a Slow-Cooked (via Crockpot) Pork Butt Roast. I set out generous amounts of crispy Bacon and shredded Colby Jack, Cayenne Pepper Flakes, a bottle of Sriracha, and a bottle of Frank's Hot Sauce for "those who may want". Everyone (including my adult son, who can be ridiculously "picky") loved it.
