Braised Collards
Braised collards are a staple of southern cooking in the U.S. Typical recipes used a little bit of bacon fat or butter, but you can still get a tasty side dish full of great nutrients by subbing in olive oil. Balsamic vinegar and soy sauce help round out the flavor palate for a dish that's bright and flavorful.Tip: If you like a little bite, add a small pinch of red pepper flakes to the skillet with the other ingredients.
