Many of us are used to cooking collard greens for a very long time. Here is a technique that we’re sure you will enjoy. Butter and lemon juice heighten the fresh flavor of the greens.
- Coarsely shred the greens and discard any thick stems.
- Heat the oil and butter in a wok or large saute pan.
- Add the garlic and greens and stir- fry over high heat, stirring constantly until tender. About 15 minutes.
- Add seasoning.
- Serve immediately, sprinkled with pine nuts if desired.
Made these greens last night and my whole family loved it. My husband had 2 plates of it and wanted to get a third plate. I know how I’m going to be cooking my collards from here on out. Thanks for the recipe. GREAT.
Love this recipe.
