Vegan Collard Greens

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.

My hubby hates to eat out, (of course you can't blame him, hahaha).We plan to drive to the beach to see the Christmas lights.


For the Vegan Collard Greens, we buy them fresh from the local farmers here in Florida. If 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!
