Lightly Braised Collards with Black Eyed Peas

This recipe came to me from Front Door Organics, where I get my produce delivered to my front door weekly, love it!   This was a great recipe, smokey as promised and the collards were lovely having braised for 40min.  I usually don’t cook them this long, and they are usually much tougher, but with this recipe, they just melt!

  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 cup black eyed peas

This is a stretch again for salad, but it was not sticking to the plan night. Salad 9 of 101, this may be harder than I thought

I loved this dish, others at the table thought the flavours were a bit “unusual”. When you have a lot of greens to get through and need variety this is a great dish.

  • 2 Tbsp minced onions
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ginger
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  1. Drop collards into a pot of boiling salted water. boil until tender, about 15 min. Drain well and then chop fine.
  2. Heat 1 Tbsp butter in pan, stir in onions and cook onlow until soft (5min). Add ginger cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Toss for a minute.
  3. Add collards and stir till warm throughout. Toss with remaining butter and serve.
