Black history month is also a great time to eat some African, Southern or Caribbean cooking. So to help celebrate I've got a recipe for collard greens!
Vegan Collard Greens:
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 carrots, peeled and thinly diced
1 scotch bonnet pepper
1 cup vegetable stock
6-8 cups chopped collard greens
A few drops of Liquid smoke
Sea salt, to taste
1.Heat the oil in a stock pot over medium heat. Add the onions, cooking until they are translucent, and soft about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly as not to burn the garlic.
2.Add carrots and pepper and cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Turn the heat down to low and add vegetable stock and collard greens. Cover pot and allow to cook just until the greens are cooked and tender. Salt to taste. Serve as a hot side dish.
So celebrate this Black History by throwing on some Bob Marley and dance around your living room, maybe watch a Sidney Poitier movie, and have some good eats!
