I'm trying to get more greens in my diet so I'm trying some different ones. I found a recipe on food.com for "easy vegetarian collard greens". I have nothing to compare the flavor to since I've never eaten collard greens but this recipe was really good. Next time I might add a couple drops of liquid smoke. For supper tonight I made "Simply Lovely Quinoa" from The Garden of Vegan, collard greens and a romaine and baby spinach salad with the French dressing I made yesterday. The collard greens were a great combination with the quinoa dish.
I've been filling in days with recipes from The Garden of Vegan for the La Dolce Vegan! Challenge. Now I remember why I like Sarah's last cookbook the best-small serving sizes. The recipe for Simply Lovely Quinoa made 4-6 servings. My husband and I get tired of leftovers. I guess I could try freezing it and see what happens.
Easy Vegetarian Collard Greens
1 lb collard greens
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 large onion, chopped
1 1/2 C vegetable stock
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp smoked sweet paprika
1/4 C apple cider vinegar
Wash greens well. Cut off stems right where leaf starts. Stack about 5-8 leaves on top of each other, then roll lengthwise. Cut rolled up leaves into 1" slices widthwise. Repeat until all the greens are done; add to a large pot. Add all other ingredients. Cover and bring to boil over high heat, then reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer for 45 minutes or until greens are extremely tender. Serve hot, using slotted spoon to drain the liquid from the greens.
Does anyone have any "easy greens" recipes they like?
