Comfy Collards

By Stephanie r. from Pacific Elementary School, Davenport, CA.



Collard Greens is a southern traditional dish that has been served to celebrate Kwanzaa. Our Comfy Collard Greens recipe is festively brightened with fresh red peppers and sweetened with chopped, sautéed onions.

This dish is easy to make, fulfilling, has a unique taste and is very healthy. We serve our Comfy Collard Greens as a side dish with Chicken, Cheese Grits, and Sweet Potato Pie.
