Cooking Collard Greens


A good friend recently made me the most delicious dish, surprisingly flavorful, using all ingredients found at the co-op. The dish was collard greens, a co-op produce staple I had previously been intimidated by. Try out this recipe to incorporate one of the world’s most healthful foods to your diet; these greens are high in vitamins K, A, C and manganese.


1 bunch collard greens, cut into ribbons

1 /2 onion, diced

4 cloves of garlic, minced

3 tbsp. miso

1 tbsp nutritional yeast

1 tsp molasses (or 1 tbsp maple syrup)

1 jar diced or whole tomatoes

1 tsp apple cider vinegar

crushed red pepper, salt, pepper to taste


Coat a pot over medium heat with a bit of oil and add diced onion and garlic. When onions are translucent, add collard greens and the rest of the ingredients, stirring to incorporate everything. Cook for around one hour or until collards are no longer bitter to taste. Adjust ingredients to taste, adding salt, pepper and crushed red pepper as desired. Enjoy!
