Sautéed Collard Greens
Collard greens, a close relative of kale, were brought to Brazil by the Portuguese.
Trim stems from 3 large bunches washed collard greens. Stack leaves, roll together lengthwise into a tight bundle, and cut crosswise into strips about 1” thick. Cook greens in a large pot of boiling water until just tender yet still bright green, 3-5 minutes. Drain and set aside. Heat 2 tbsp. olive oil and 2 tbsp. butter together in a large wide pot over medium heat. Add 2 minced peeled garlic cloves and 1 chicken-flavored bouillon cube and cook, mashing cube with back of a spoon, until garlic is soft, 1-2 minutes. Add greens and cook, stirring to coat well, for 3-5 minutes. Season to taste with freshly ground white pepper. Serves 12.Recipes | December 1st, 2010
