Southern Greens

What you need: 

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon vegan butter
1/2 small white onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 bunch collard greens, chopped
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon paprika
kosher salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke
1 cup vegetable stock

What you do: 

1. Heat up skillet with the olive oil. Place the onions in and let them sweat until they start to get translucent. Add in the garlic and then the butter. Now add in the collard greens.
2. Once all vegetables are in, add the spices, apple cider vinegar, liquid smoke, and vegetable stock.
3. Let simmer until most of the liquid is gone. I prefer my greens a little crunchy, so I let them become almost over done. It is up to the chef as to when one wants to stop cooking. If you prefer them just tender, watch the greens until you can pierce with a fork.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

Amazing recipe!  I'm from Arkansas and these greens tasted so authentic!  I used kale because that's what I had on hand.  Since kale cooks faster than collards, I reduced the cooking time to retain more vitamins, and I used less broth.  I sprinkled a little hot sauce on top, and I was in heaven.  This is my go-to recipe for Southern greens!  Thanks!

Awesome, I'm so glad!

I totally just made this, sans liquid smoke, for a group of real Southern people (Now in Utah) who are omni's and they LOVED it! They did not even miss the bacon they complained about not being in there. Sooooo, LOVE!
