As you must be aware of by now, I love collard greens. I really do, I think they are like the best tasting green around and I eat them literally every week. But sometimes when you fall in love with a recipe, and keep eating it, you get sick of it. Since I love collards so much I didn’t want to get bored of them so I decided I needed a new way to make them that was new and different. At the same time, I have been going to a new restaurant around work called Bon Me (great place, a must try) and falling in love with all the Asian flavors they create. So putting two and two together I took a turn at making some Asian style greens. The result was delicious and will keep my love for collards going!
- collard greens
- 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic
- pan spray
- Begin by washing your collards well and then slicing them into ribbons width wise. About 1/2 cm to 1 cm thick.
- To cut down on my oil use I just spray a deep walled pan with pan spray. Set to medium head and add in your collards. Continuously stirring you will see them start to wilt.
- Add a sprinkle of garlic powder,sesame seeds, and crushed red pepper flakes. Continue to cook.
- When most of the leaves are wilted add in your soy sauce and continue to cook another 5-10 minutes.
- Then eat and enjoy!!!
