Garlicky Collard Greens

Cassandra Wellington

A walking contradiction, Cassandra has a philanthropist’s God-complex by day, and a hedonist’s appetite by night. She swears she doesn’t eat KFC and shops organic, but catch her in the wee hours of the morning making out with an everything burrito and then you’ll see right into her soul. Give Cassandra a thousand bucks at 2pm and she will create a revelation for you by way of a nine course gourmet tasting menu. Give her that same amount of cash at 2am and she’ll blow it on tacos, malt liquor and gummi worms. What? Don’t judge.

    These sound delicious! I love that they are so simple, I feel that greens like this deserve to be not overwhelmed ;)! The amount of garlic in these would make me very happy as well :)!

      @vanilla_cake I don’t know what it is, but covering these glorious greens in garlicky olive oil with just a smidge of black pepper and salt gets me giddy. These are also good with kale, swiss chard or any other grand green you can get your pretty little hands on. Have fun 😉

      @eatyourselfskinny Awww shucks! We’re so happy to have you here 😉

      I adore these greens because they are deceptively easy to make, deceptively healthy and the knife work makes them seem like art on the plate. Plus they are vegan, so everyone’s invited to the party. And you know I love a party.
