Side dish - Southern collard greens recipe vegetarian

Author: Martha Golliday  

These southern collard greens are braised low and slow in broth with tons of spices, liquid smoke and brown sugar! It is full of the nutrients and flavor that have leached out of the greens during cooking, and makes a very full-bodied and rich broth you can use as a replacement for water when making rice (my favorite), as the base for soups or stews, or in any other savory dish that requires broth or water.

  4. Add greens in three batches, stirring with a wooden spoon after each addition to wilt greens. After all greens have been added, pour in stock and stir to incorporate. Bring greens to a boil.
  5. Once greens come to a boil, reduce heat to medium and add spices, brown sugar, liquid smoke and vinegars. Stir to incorporate all ingredients. Cover pot and simmer for 30 - 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. Check flavor and consistency of greens after about 30-45 minutes of cooking. Add more seasoning to taste. Replace lid and continue cooking for another 30-45 minutes, depending on desired level of tenderness.
  7. Once greens have reached your preferred level of tenderness, transfer them to a serving bowl with some of the cooking liquid. Top with a few dashes of hot sauce before serving if desired.

Easy Vegetarian Collard Greens

Easy Vegetarian Collard Greens
This is a wonderful way to make delicious, tender, vegan collard greens. The smoked sweet paprika in these greens imparts a wonderful smoky flavor without the traditional but decidedly non-kosher and non-vegetarian smoked ham hock. Make sure the paprika you buy is smoked, as the regular kind won't give you that smoky flavor. Whatever you do, don't discard the pot liquor! It is full of the nutrients and flavor that have leached out of the greens during cooking, and makes a very full-bodied and rich broth you can use as a replacement for water when making rice (my favorite), as the base for soups or stews, or in any other savory dish that requires broth or water.
