Servings 4 servings


  • 1 bunch collard greens deribbed, chopped
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1-2 cloves garlic pressed or chopped fine
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • rice wine vinegar optional


  • Wash well, derib your collards. In a skillet, heat the olive oil over a medium high heat and sauté the garlic till tender, but don’t let it brown.
  • Add the greens and keep stirring till they are nice and bright green. Now add about an inch of water to the bottom of the skillet, cover, and simmer till tender.
  • It may take awhile for the collards, and add a little more water if necessary. Stick a fork in to test for tenderness.
  • Salt and pepper to taste, then serve with rice wine vinegar on the side (that’s how I love ’em!). Completely delicious and highly nutritious.
