An ode to a classic.
Collard Greens are one of those dishes that can either make or break you. It takes years to get them right! Traditionally, Collards are cooked over several hours until they almost melt in your mouth. While I like the traditional way of cooking greens, I don’t always have time for the all day affair. I’ve come up with a quick dish that I can make on a weeknight to satisfy my craving.
These are NOT your or my Granny’s greens. These greens have a little bite to them. Tasty and full of flavor, these Collards are delish!
