Yeah, it's a "cooking green". You can steam it, braise it or stirfry it. It's yummy!<br><br><br><br>
Or it you still want to eat it raw, you can juice it and add something else to cut the flavor.

I simmer them with turnip or daikon radish, onion, garlic, and seasonings (depends on what you like - I usually use an all purpose like Dash). I prefer them cooked a long long time (though I imagine there's less vitamins that way).

Well, I like them southern style. I cook half an onion and some garlic in oil until softened. As that is cooking I take out the stem of the greens and then chop the leaves into large pieces. Then I add them to the onions with a can of chopped tomatoes, including the juice. Then a dash or two of tobasco, salt and pepper to taste, and I just let it cook for about 20-30 min. I like my greens really cooked, but you could experiment to see how you like them. At the end of the cooking I splash some red or white vinegar in to brighten the flavors. I eat this with corn bread and black eyed peas. So good.

i'll have a chance coming up here to eat a whole lot of collards <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> i've only tried making them once, and they turned out ok...if not a little gag inducing....cause of the hunky ribs/veins.

I like to saute collard greens in olive oil with onoin, garlic, extra firm tofu, seaweed, ****ake mushrooms, and a dry pack of miso soup. Served over brown rice. Yummy!
