Thank you!

Easy collard without meat

Made it and loved it!!!

This is a wonderful recipe, and has made my husband and me totally re-think the potential of collard greens -- thank you!

These are delicious and super fast and easy! I salted the boiling water before putting in the collards- don't know if that made any difference but the end result was really good.

yummy

I use this recipe but when I'm sauteing the garlic I put some bread crumbs, Lemon Juice, Adobo & Some Shredded Cheese :)

Blanching really does eliminate the bitterness. Thanks for the recipe.
