Easy Vegan Collard Greens


November 14, 2012 by Jenn

Thanksgiving is coming up on us pretty fast and one of my favorite dinner staples is collard greens. They are delicious and healthy to boot! Since I don’t eat meat, I have to make a recipe that doesn’t include using a pork bone or chicken stock but is still tasty. I use this recipe all the time and it is so easy!!

This recipe yields 6 servings.

You will need:
- 1 pound collard greens
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 1/2 cups vegetable stock
- 1 tsp crushed red pepper
- dash salt
- dash pepper
- 1 tbsp oil


Start by heating the oil in a medium sized pot. Add the onions and let them simmer for a few minutes until they are soft. Pour the veggie stock into the pot and bring to a simmer. While you are waiting for the veggie stock, wash and cut your greens. I like to stack the leaves on top of one another, roll them up, and then slice them diagonally. This will give you long strips which make them easier to eat.
It should look like this.

Once the stock is simmering (not boiling) add the spices and stir well. Next add the greens! Now all your ingredients are combined and all you have to do is wait. Simmer the greens for 30 to 40 minutes or until they are tender. I like my greens spicy so I put in 1 tsp red pepper, sometimes more. If you’re not a fan of spicy foods you could omit the red pepper and just add a little more black pepper or add 2 tsp if you LOVE spicy. Either way, this is a dish that will not break the bank that will leave everyone happy.
