This weekend is my husband’s birthday and I’m so excited to make him some of his favorite dishes.
He specially requested that I make my Cranberry Oatmeal Sandwich Cookies, Vegan Gluten-Free Carrot Cake, Jamaican Rice and Peas, Jamaican Spicy Curry Potato and a big pot of Vegan Southern-Style Collard Greens.
What Are Collard Greens?
Collard greens are dark green leafy vegetables that are popular in the Southern United States, they are in the same family as kale.
Collard greens are cultivated all year round and they thrive in the heat of summer, but they are tastier during the winter months.
How To Cook Vegan Southern-Style Collard Greens
For the Vegan Collard Greens, we buy them fresh from the local farmers here in Florida. I find that they are very tender and usually cook in 30 minutes or less.
For this recipe, I added smoked paprika for a real smoky flavor along with onion, garlic, and tomatoes to replace meat. The result is bursting with flavors that you won’t even miss the meat!
