Southern Style Collard Greens

What you need: 

1 large bunch of collard greens
1 tablespoon seasoned salt
1 teaspoon regular salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
2 tablespoons of vegan margarine
1 cube vegetarian vegetable bullion
hot pepper sauce or ground cayenne pepper to taste

What you do: 

In a large pot, add approximately 3 quarts of water (more or less depending on how big your collard bunch is). Bring water to a boil, and mix bullion, all salts, and black pepper. Reduce heat and let simmer while you prepare the greens.
Wash greens thoroughly. Strip away stems that run down the middle of the leaf from the greens (tearing them from top to bottom, away from the stems). Stack the leaves together (I found about 8 -10 works) and roll them up, and slice them into 1" slices. Add the stripped and cut greens to the pot. Add margarine and pepper sauce or ground cayenne pepper to taste. Cover pot, and simmer for about 1 hour, stirring occasionally.

This recipe took the mystery out of making collard greens.  I watched my grandmother for years make them and they were always delicious and seasoned with meat.  For one reason or other, I never could figure out what she did that made them so incredibly good.  Now, it doesn't even matter...lol.

LOVED IT! My step daughters loved tearing the greens off the stem, they also loved eating them. I think they had 3 helpings each! (I made a huge batch) Thank you so much for sharing! The whole family loved it :)

Thank you so much I have been in a battle for days with the people I love the most. Greens are a must for the holiday and I have been off cow and pig for almost 8 months now, my friends and relatives all agreed collards must be made with salt pork. Thank you Thank you this site is an A+ with me and with tools like this giving up the poultry for New Years will not be as hard as everyone around me has predicted, Thank YouSmile

Mmmmmmmm. So good.  I had them on New Year's Day with this awesome cilantro lime black eyed pea salsa.

The texture of the collard greens was buttery..... definitely a good thing.

Very tasty indeed. I used a little less water and it was super flavorful. Will serve it with potatoes and pour some of the leftover sauce on them too.
