This is a very good recipe for people who do not like collard greens. Collards may be cooked ahead and re-heated. Serve with hot pepper vinegar if desired.

I used this recipe because it was the first time ever cooking collards in my house. My hubby who is usually picky with greens immediately went "MMMMM" with the first bite. I used a good pepper bacon an three cloves of garlic. Definitely keeping this! Read More

I always thought collard greens had to be cooked until there was no life left in them. Then I had them at Ethiopian restaurants and knew that wasn t the case. This recipe is great easy and delicious. I did add more garlic and also about 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar at the end to brighten it up. Read More
