    These greens are delicious. I actually like them better than any of the pork-based ways to cook them, the flavor of the greens comes out better without the greasy meat. I use a can of chopped tomatoes, just because fresh are often quite pricey. Yum! After living in the south for a while as a kid, I never thought I'd have good greens again... but these are even better!

    These were fabulous! I was out of onion, so I omitted that and the smoked paprika. I added canned diced tomatoes, drained, and used frozen collard greens. I'll definitely make this again. Thanks!

    This was just as delicious when the onion was sauteed in a little of the vegetable broth instead of butter and oil. I used balsamic instead of cider vinegar - YUM! Collards are super easy to grow, and taste best right from the garden. Store-bought collards are likely a few days old, and always seem too strong for me. Jut a tip! :-)
