Easy Brazilian-Style Collard Greens

Brazillian-style Collard Greens

This is my favorite dish of the moment.  My cousin’s wife from Brazil made these collard greens for me at Thanksgiving this year.  It is a traditional Brazilian dish called couve.  It is often served with Brazil’s national dish feijoda, which is a stew of beef, pork and beans.  I have been enjoying it at home with stone ground grits and a seared or grilled pork chop.

Collard greens are considered to be a very healthy food, which is perfect for me as I just started a diet.  The K-J Culinary team is competing this year in a “biggest loser” contest and I am playing to win.  Stay tuned for more healthy recipes and status on the competition.

This healthy and delicious dish pairs very well with Kendall-Jackson Cabernet Sauvignon.

    Trying this tonight! Often wondered what the difference in Kosher and non K salt would be. Only have the sea salt. Guess that’ll work.

    Gotta say, Justin, I’ve made this several times since your post. It does not disappoint!

    I’m a fan of the savory, bitter greens. I often do chard or kale like this too.

    Good stuff!
