Quick Braised Collard Greens
Reason #1735 why we love our Roasted Chopped Garlics: In this recipe, it adds slow cooked flavor to these greens without hours of cooking!
What you need
1 pound collard greens (about 2 bunches)
4 strips bacon, sliced
1 teaspoon Tessemae’s Slow Roasted Garlic
2 teaspoons Tessemae’s Hot Sauce
What to do
Cut out the stems from the greens, then roll up the leaves and slice crosswise, about ½ inch thick. Wash the greens in a bowl of water or salad spinner.
Cook the bacon in a large skillet until browned and spoon the bacon onto paper towel to drain. Leave the fat in the pan.
Add the greens, Roasted Chopped Garlic and about ¼ cup water to the pan. Season with salt and pepper and cover. Cook, tossing occasionally, until greens are tender. 10- 12 minutes. (If needed, add more water to the pan.) Stir in Hot Sauce and sprinkle with the bacon.
