Hilah Cooking is a short-form, educational web series focused on making cooking FUN! We release two episodes every week. Our focus is on simple, low-cost recipes with a Texas flair. Everything is made from scratch, people! You will not see any packets of taco seasoning mix or gravy powder up in here. If you are going to learn how to cook, you are going to learn it for real! But I promise it will be fun and easy.
These aren’t your grandma’s collard greens! Well, maybe they are if your grandma is, like, real progressive and doesn’t put bacon in EVERYTHING. Even if she is, she would probably still like these.
Healthy collard greens Ingredients
* 1 bunch of collard greens
* 1 tablespoon olive oil
* 2 teaspoons minced garlic
* 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar (or balsamic, or cider vinegar)
Wash the greens well (spinach in particular has a nasty habit of being absolutely filthy). Remove the bottom inch or so of the stems. Holding the bunch together with one hand, slice the whole thing into about 1″ slices, perpendicular to the stem. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the garlic; cook it for about 10-20 seconds until it just barely changes color to light blond (like me! But real.) Add the greens, putting the stemmy pieces on the bottom and the leafier pieces on top. Sprinkle with the red pepper and salt. After about 30 seconds, toss it around to move the top to the bottom and the bottom to the top and all mixed up good. Continue tossing until the greens have wilted slightly and are bright green. Remove from heat and add the vinegar. Serve hot or at room temperature, but honestly they’re better hot.
