Asian Greens

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

How to:

  1. Begin by washing your collards well and then slicing them into ribbons width wise.  About 1/2 cm to 1 cm thick.
  2. 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.
  3. Add a sprinkle of garlic powder,sesame seeds, and crushed red pepper flakes. Continue to cook.
  4. When most of the leaves are wilted add in your soy sauce and continue to cook another 5-10 minutes.
  5. Then eat and enjoy!!!
