from cookiedog

Recipe courtesy of Ben Silviera.


  • 2 lbs collard greens
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon vegan margarine
  • 1/3 cup minced shallot
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • kosher salt and pepper

Remove and discard stems from collard greens and cut leaves into strips.

Heat oil and margarine in large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add shallots and garlic, sauteing until brown.

Slowly add collard greens, stirring until they reach the desired degree of tenderness, about 15 minutes (time will vary on your personal taste).

Add kosher salt and pepper to taste.
