Sauteed Collard Greens

Updated: Nov 17, 2019


When I think of Collard Greens, I think of leafy greens that are braised with meat and are meltingly delicious. Though when I spotted shredded collard greens at the market, I grabbed them and headed home. I decided to saute them over high heat, just like I would do for spinach. Within minutes I was enjoying a plate of crisp greens sauteed in olive oil, garlic, crushed red pepper and splashed with fresh lemon juice. Sauteed Collard Greens is a new quick-favorite veggie for me.
