Brazilian Style Collard Greens

I had some collard greens leftover from the soup I made for lunch and so went searching for a recipe to turn them into a side dish for dinner. Today was my first time cooking with collard greens and it will definitely not be my last! This recipe is adapted from one on the Whole Foods website.

Brazilian Style Collard Greens
serves 3

1 large bunch collard greens
1 1/2 TB olive oil
1 large shallot, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
sea salt and ground pepper to taste

  1. Cut off tough end stems from collard greens. Pile them, roll tightly, then cut into thin strips.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet or medium pot over medium heat. Saute shallot with garlic, stirring often until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Add greens, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often for about 5 minutes until greens are tender.
