This week in our GFGF group the focus is on greens. Greens are so good for us! It is what we call soul food here in the south. Right now we all need to be loading up on our vegetables and building our immune system. They are very nutritious and loaded with lots of Vitamin K and other minerals.
My all time favorite greens are collards. I also love turnip greens, mustard greens, spinach, and lettuces. For this post, I decided to make and share some collards. Nothing fancy, but oh so delicious! I am going to utilize my instant pot because it works really well for these. You could also cook them in a pot on the stove, but you would need to increase cooking time.
After cooking, the liquid left behind is called pot likker. So good to sop up with a nice piece of cornbread. Cornbread is a must have to go with these greens, as is some good hot pepper sauce drizzled on top.
Check back in two weeks for shell beans.
