Kickin' Vegetarian Collard Greens
Ingredients1 h servings 238 cals
- Heat olive oil and butter in a large pot over medium heat until butter melts and starts to brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir until onion turns translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in thyme and bay leaves.
- Pour chopped tomatoes, vegetable broth, brown sugar, molasses, and liquid smoke into the pot; bring to a simmer. Stir in collard greens gently. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, until tender, about 30 minutes.
- Cook's Notes:
- If you're not planning to serve the collard greens with black-eyed peas, the white beans (or chickpeas) can be added at the same time as the tomatoes to make this a main dish, served of course with corn bread on the side.
- Substitute 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme for the fresh thyme if desired.
