Tasty Collard Greens

One of my sisters asked me for my collard greens recipe, so I figured I'd go ahead and post it here in case anyone was interested.

Collard Greens

2 bunches collard greens
1/2 C chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
2 T olive oil
1 scant teaspoon sweet, smoked paprika
1/4 t salt

Remove and discard the stems from the collards. Wash leaves thoroughly to remove any dirt or grit.

On medium heat, saute onion until caramelized. Add garlic, saute until softened about 3-4 minutes.

Add smoked paprika and saute for one more minute.

Add collard greens and stir to coat with oil and cover.

Cook for 30-40 minutes, stirring periodically. If the greens begin to stick to the bottom, add a bit of water.

Remove from heat. Add salt and stir to combine. More salt (and lemon juice if desired) may be added to taste.

Yummy! I will try this out soon and let you know how I like it. Will have to leave out the garlic, but everything else sounds good. Thanks!
