Summer Eats: Collard Greens

IMG_8847

One green that I don’t think gets enough attention are collard greens which are super nutritious and hold up really well when cooking. I love to saute them up with tamari, sesame oil and garlic. Collard Greens also go really well with walnuts, pecans, white beans and dried cranberries.

Nutritional Benefits: Collard Greens are filled with calcium, fiber, vitamin C and B vitamins.

Here are a few of my favorite Collard recipes:
