Earlier in the week I received a big bunch of collard greens from my local farm box and I quickly prepped them for cooking later in the week. I sauteed them up tonight and was able to just wash them since most of the hard work was done earlier. Try them with any kind of dried fruit and nut as a side dish or by adding some more protein like sausage, shrimp or even tofu.
Collard Greens with Toasted Almonds and Raisins:
One bunch of washed and chopped Collard Green Leaves. Rinse and trim their stems and dry them with a towel
1/3 cup toasted sliced almonds
1/3 cup Golden Raisins
2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
2 tsp avocado oil or olive oil
1/4 tsp salt
Heat up the avocado oil in a large saute pan.
When the oil is hot, add the chopped Collards and saute for a few minutes until they start to wilt a little. Add a pinch of salt and stir.
Throw in the raisins and saute a bit more.
Remove from pan and top with the almonds and grated cheese.
