Collards Mediterranean Style


* 1 lb. collard greens, trimmed, rinsed, rough chopped
* 2 cups water
* 1 Tbsp olive oil
* 1 small yellow onion, diced
* 8 cloves garlic, minced
* 1 Tbsp olive oil
* 1 green bell pepper, diced
* 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
* 1 tsp salt
* 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
* 1/2 tsp paprika
* 1/2 tsp ground allspice
* 2 Tbsp minced fresh ginger root


1. Put prepared collard greens in a large pot with the 2 cups of water over medium-high heat and bring to a boil; immediately reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes or until collards are tender. Drain over a bowl, reserving the cooking water; set aside both the collards and the drained water.
2. In same large pot, put the olive oil and onions over medium heat and cook until onions become clear and just start to brown, then stir in the garlic and cook for 1 minute.
3. Throw in the collards, and another 1 tablespoon of olive oil and the reserved cooking water and cook over medium heat (uncovered) until the cooking liquid almost disappears entirely, about 10 to 12 minutes should do it.
4. Put the diced green bell pepper in the pot and add the remaining ingredients, stir and simmer over medium-low heat until the peppers soften, about 5 minutes. Serve warm. Serves 6 people as a side dish.


Eating more greens is a great way to boost your nutrition. But if you're tired of the same old Southern style collard greens, this is a twist on a classic dish.

The sweetness of the allspice and the kick of ginger are just what you need to turn a simple collard greens dish into something unique. Serve this dish alongside grilled salmon or pork for a truly delicious, and nutritious, dish.
