Stir Fry Collard Greens

The holidays are coming upon us fast and this is a time we celebrate with family and friends. One of my favorite holiday dishes  I like to adorn my dinner table with is Collard Greens. Growing up we had collard greens the down home way.  The pot was filled with water, seasonings, hamhocks, salt pork or smoked turkey. The greens would be added once the water came to a boil. The greens cooked for about 40 minutes or until tender. You had the option to dress your collard greens with onions, tomatoes or hot peppers. We would also add a dash of white distilled vinegar and some hot sauce, yum! I love the holidays, no one counts how many times you go back for seconds, LOL!!!

Now we live in a time where it all about finding healthier ways to prepare our food.  I am not going to give up my collard greens but I have decided to prepare them a different way. Try out this stir fry recipe. I cook collard greens this way often and I really enjoy it.
