Greens and "Cream"!....Creamy, Garlicky Collard Greens

I love any and all leafy greens.  Makes a great side dish and accompaniment to almost all entrees!  Now that Paula Dean is on the outs, someone has to make delicious collards!

These are pretty close to the southern style creamed collards, but with eliminating the obscene amount of butter, cream and cheese.  Instead, I used just a touch of EVOO and soy cream (which can be found at Trader Joe's or in the "healthy" aisle of your local grocery store).

 Creamy, Garlicky Collard Greens

Many people like to boil their greens, but I prefer giving them a quick saute.  This way you are able to maintain a lot of the nutrients.  When you thoroughly cook something or boil veggies, you are killing a lot of those vitamins and nutrients .

Collard Greens
1 chopped garlic
1-2 tbsp soy cream
1/2 tbsp evoo
2 tbsp nutritional yeast

In a pan, saute garlic in EVOO for about 1-2 minutes, add the collards and saute for an additional 5 minutes.  Add in remaining ingredients and stir until thoroughly combined and most of the "cream" has soaked into the collards.

That's it!!!  Enjoy this with BBQ "honey" chipotle-lime Chik'n Breast!
