Sautéed until soft


  • 1 tablespoon of poultry seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon of minced garlic
  • Add 4 cups of cleaned, chopped Collard Greens and heat until wilted.
  • Add 6 cups of Vegetable stock
  • Add in stewed tomatoes, Black eyed peas, and simmer for 2 hours as soup reduces and thickens slightly.
