New Year's Day Collards
1 pound collard greens (with smaller leaves)
3/4 cup chopped Vidalia onion
2 cloves garlic, sliced
1 1/2 cups water
2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp. Simply Organic All-Purpose Seasoning
1/2 tsp. smoked paprika

fine to keep. Wash the collards thoroughly. Stack the leaves,
roll them up and then chop coarsely.

minutes. Add garlic and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
Add collard greens to pot and increase heat to high; cook,
stirring, until greens wilt, about 2 minutes.
Add water and bring to a boil; reduce heat to low, cover and
simmer, stirring occasionally, until greens are tender, about
Remove from heat and stir in vinegar, all-purpose seasoning,
smoked paprika and hot sauce. Serve extra hot pepper sauce on
the side if desired.
Makes 4 servings (about 3/4 cup per serving).
