Sauteed Collard Greens

Sauteed Collard Greens


2 lbs of collard greens cleaned, shredded, discarding any thick stems.
2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
3 tbs unsalted butter
2 garlic cloves, minced
Toasted pine nuts for garnish
Kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste.

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.
