Southern Style Collard Greens

What you need: 

1 large bunch of collard greens
1 tablespoon seasoned salt
1 teaspoon regular salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
2 tablespoons of vegan margarine
1 cube vegetarian vegetable bullion
hot pepper sauce or ground cayenne pepper to taste

What you do: 

In a large pot, add approximately 3 quarts of water (more or less depending on how big your collard bunch is). Bring water to a boil, and mix bullion, all salts, and black pepper. Reduce heat and let simmer while you prepare the greens.
Wash greens thoroughly. Strip away stems that run down the middle of the leaf from the greens (tearing them from top to bottom, away from the stems). Stack the leaves together (I found about 8 -10 works) and roll them up, and slice them into 1" slices. Add the stripped and cut greens to the pot. Add margarine and pepper sauce or ground cayenne pepper to taste. Cover pot, and simmer for about 1 hour, stirring occasionally.

I love this recipe.. Verry healthy! Even non-vegans like it  ;)


This was really delicious! I made some wild rice using some of the excess broth after it had been simmering a while. Yum :) I like my veggies pretty crunchy and simmering med-low for 45 minutes was perfect texture of the greens. Everyone here (meat eaters) liked it enough to have seconds and we ate every leaf. (I omitted margarine, didnt seem to need it) Tasty (cheap :D) and so healthy. Thanks


This dish was very tasty and healthy!  I omitted the vegan margarine and the dish didn't seem to loose any flavor.  Be very liberal with the vegetable bullion and spices; as you are adding it to large amounts of water!
