Collard greens are in abundance this time of year so head on down to your local farmers market or grocer and pick some up to make this recipe! You won't regret it! This recipe is delicious, simple and easily doubled for a larger family or crowd.
1 large bunch collard greens, leaves removed from stems, torn and washed
4 cups homemade vegetable or chicken stock (you can also do half stock half water)
1 Tbs garlic powder
1 Tbs onion powder
1 Tbs hot sauce
1 Tbs light brown sugar
1 Tbs freshly cracked black pepper
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp smoked paprika (optional)
1. Heat a large pot over medium heat with 1 Tbs olive oil. Add half of greens, allow to wilt slightly. Add second half of greens, stir and allow to wilt slightly.
2. Add the rest of the ingredients to the pot. Stir. Bring to a simmer and simmer 30-60 minutes (simmer at least 30 minutes, but these get yummier as you cook them, so 60 minutes is best)
