smokey Collard Greens


Serves 2




1 large bunch of collard greens, washed thoroughly*

1 tbsp canola oil

2 medium shallots or ½ medium onion, chopped

½ tsp smoked paprika (sweet, not hot)

½ tsp chili flakes

1 clove of garlic, minced

¼ tsp kosher salt

*You can also use a bag of Trader Joe’s cooking greens mix




Remove stems and spines from collard greens. Cut into ½ inch ribbons. To make cutting easy, stack 2 to 3 leaves together and roll them up like a cigar. Then, using a sharp knife, cut into "ribbons".




In a 3 qt saucepan (or medium dutch oven), heat canola oil over medium heat. Add shallots and cook for about 2 minutes. Turn up heat to medium high.


Add collards, paprika and chili flakes to pan. Stir well to coat. Cook for about 3-5 minutes. We want the collards to remain a vibrant green and somewhat crunchy.


Remove from heat. Add garlic and salt to taste. Stir to coat evenly.
