Coconut Collard Greens

Updated: Jan 2, 2023

Happy new year everyone!! Today is also the last day of Kwanzaa. I decided to make a wonderful dish I shared with a friend the other day. Since one of my intentions for the new year is to eat more plants that I don't usually include on my daily menu, collard greens seemed the perfect way to start the new year.

Two nice bunches of collard greens at your local market and slice them thin after removing the stems. I save the stems for my broth.

Slice a yellow onion. Set aside.

Mince 4 cloves of garlic and and inch of ginger.

Melt 2 T coconut oil and add

  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

  • 2 tsp curry powder

Once fragrant, add to your fragrant oil the greens, onion, garlic, ginger. Let them simmer for a few minutes until the greens are wilted.

Slowly add one can coconut milk. Season with salt and pepper. Place your dish covered in a 350 degree oven and cook for 45 min.

Serve with fresh lime and cocofir. Yummmm!
