Easy Vegetarian Collard Greens recipe. These greens are simmered in a brown sugar vegetable broth making them full of flavor!
With lots of greens to pick in the garden we are having a side dish of collard greens weekly at the dinner table. I love these collards so much I’ve been making a big batch to take to work to eat for lunch a few times a week (partnered with some cheese/crackers because I love a mismatched lunch).
Vegetarian Collard Greens
So many Collard Greens recipes call for chicken broth or ham hocks, but in this recipe I’m using vegetable broth to make it Vegetarian friendly. I’m adding a little bit of brown sugar into the vegetable broth to balance out the natural bitter flavor that collards give, but not making it too sweet.
Years ago I had some of the best collard greens in North Carolina at a Mom and Pop style restaurant. I was shocked to find out these weren’t made with meat so I made it a goal to come up with a equally delicious recipe I could make at home!
