Vary Aminanana (Collard Greens and Rice)

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"This is a recipe from Madagascar. I converted it to a slow cooker dish so I could take it to work for a fundraiser for 'Operation Rice Bowl.' I tripled the recipe to feed a crowd. I increased the healthy aspect by using fresh vegetables."
