Louisiana Greens and “Sausage”

Louisiana Greens and "Sausage"

Serves 6

A spicy dish with great flavor and texture, this greens mixture contains a delicious potlikker, which is the vitamin- and mineral-rich broth that comes from cooking down the greens.
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • ¼ tsp. crushed red pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 medium-sized onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 14-oz. bulk-style soy “sausage”
  • 16 oz. mixed greens, such as mustard, collard, turnip and spinach
  • 2 ½ Tbs. red wine vinegar
  • ⅓ cup white wine or vegetable stock
  • 2 cups vegetarian “chicken” stock, boiling
  • ¾ cup tomato sauce
  • ½ Tbs. dried thyme
  1. Heat oil and crushed pepper over medium-high heat in a very large saucepan or stockpot for 1 minute. Add garlic and onions. Cook for 2 minutes, and add soy “sausage,” stirring and breaking apart with a large spoon. Cook mixture for 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browned. Add greens, reduce heat to medium-low and cook mixture, covered, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, or until greens cook down. Add vinegar, wine, stock and tomato sauce. Reduce heat to low.
  2. Cover, and cook for 15 minutes. Add thyme, and cook 5 minutes longer, or until greens are tender, stirring occasionally.

I made this a few nights and I didn't like this dish at all. I really wish I had because this sounded so good. It was just too soupy.

I was astonished at how easy and tasty this dish turned out. It makes a great meal for a busy weeknight, especially when served over rice.
