Vegetarian Braised Collard Greens Recipe.
Thoroughly wash the leaves of the greens and pat dry. Use a knife to remove the ribs and set aside.
Pile the leaves and slice into thin ribbons.
Thinly slice garlic.
Heat a large pot or soup pot over medium heat. Melt butter. Add sliced garlic and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
Toss in greens, salt, red pepper flakes and water. Stir, cover and lower light to Low. Cook 50 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Squeeze lemon over greens and serve. Excellent with brown rice or as a side dish to almost anything. Enjoy!
