  • 3bunches Collard Greens, destemmed, chopped, and rinsed(about 2lbs)
  • 1cup White Mushrooms, chopped
  • 1large Yellow Onion, Chopped
  • 1cup Silk Coconut Milk, unsweetened
  • 3/4cup Water
  • 1.5Tbsp Miso Paste
  • 1.5tsp Garlic Powder, unsalted
  • 1.5tsp Onion Powder, unsalted
  • 1.5tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1/8 tsp Chipotle Pepper
  1. With the dark leafy side down, using a serrated knife, closely cut down each side of the stem to remove the stalk. Repeat until all stems have been removed from all leaves. Roll collards and cut into about 1/2 inch pieces. Rinse in running water and drain thoroughly.
  2. Roughly chop mushrooms and onions. Sautee in a non-stick pan for 7-8 minutes until caramelized. If sticking occur add a few drop of water as needed.
  3. In a bowl whisk together the coconut milk, water, miso paste, onion powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika, and chipotle pepper. Set aside.
  4. Add the collards to the pan with sauteed veggies. Pour the broth over collards. Place a lid over the pan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a medium heat and cook covered for 15 minutes. Remove the lid and give the collards a stir thru. Re-cover the collards and continue to cook, stirring every 5 minutes or so, for an additional 25 minutes. If there is still water in the pan after cooking time, remove the lid and continue to cook until all water has evaporated. Enjoy the savoriness!
Recipe Notes

Note:   There should be no water in the pan at the end of the cooking time. If water should cook out before the 15 minutes mark, reduce the heat a little, add a little water (about 1/4 cup), cover and allow the collards to continue to cook for the recommended time. There should be no water left in the pan, just the glaze of the coconut milk. Feel free to allow the collards to simmer longer after the recommended time on a very low temperature as it only intensifies the tenderness and savoriness!
