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.

We love this dish and have been making it regularly since it was published in 2004. We serve it with mashed potatoes that are 50% white potatoes and 50% sweet potatoes. This soaks up most of the extra liquid and makes for a hearty meal.

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.
