This Braised Collard Greens recipe is the perfect, savory side dish for any dinner. (GF & vegan option)
Braised Collard Greens
Hi Everyone! I love side dishes because they can really make a meal. These Braised Collard Greens are so substantial and satisfying.
They can be customized to be vegan too if you wish!
I love these Braised Collard Greens so much that I feel like they can stand on their own, top them with your favorite cheese, like in this case shaved Parmesan (or another dry cheese) and serve it over rice or noodles.
You can add onions to it, like I suggest, or garlic or shallots – this will only add to the flavor.
I suggest using chicken broth and butter for cooking but for a vegan option, you can use vegetable broth and coconut oil in the same amount. Sometimes, I do this sometimes, I don’t, it depends who’s sitting at my table and what I am in the mood for 🙂
You can cut the stems and leave them out but I always leave them on. It only adds fiber and texture. It might add a little time to the cooking time to cook through those stems.
I know you will enjoy this Braised Collard Greens recipe, there’s so many ways to customize them!
