Collard greens are great around the holidays, paired with slow cooked meats, and is a great side dish for barbecues and gatherings with friends. I love this recipe, and its quick, easy, and delicious!

Vegan Note: use vegetable stock for this recipe.


1 quart stock, chicken or vegetable

1 bunch collard greens, or any kind you like

1 tbsp. garlic powder

1/2 tbsp. crushed red pepper

1/2 tbsp. nutritional yeast

pepper to taste



Wash and pat dry the greens, and roughly chop into a large dice.

Heat a medium-sized pot to medium high.

Add in the stock, greens, garlic powder, crushed red pepper, and nutritional yeast.

Let it come up to a boil, stir, cover with a lid and turn down the heat to medium low.

Simmer for 30-45 minutes until greens are soft and cooked through and enjoy!
