Low Country Collard Greens

Posted: Nov 2, 2015


Low Country Collard Greens

This recipe is inspired by one of my favorite chefs, Sean Brock, who has essentially re-ignited a passion for low country cooking in the United States. Southern food isn't just about BBQ and cornbread!
Ingredients (~4 servings)

  • 2 bunches, Collard Greens
  • Juice and zest of 1/2 Lemon
  • 1/4c, Dry Roasted Peanuts
  • 2 cloves, Garlic
  • 2 tsp,  Chili flakes
  • 1/2 tsp, Salt
  • 2 tbsp, Olive oil 


  1.  De-stem and de-vein the collard greens, then wash them well in a colander.
  2.  In a stock pot pour in the olive oil and turn heat to med-low, then throw in garlic and chili flakes. Let saute for ~3 min. *Garlic will burn easily so turn heat to low if needed*
  3.  Add in the collard greens, give it a good stir, place the lid on and cook for ~10 min. on med heat.
  4. finish with lemon juice and lemon zest, let cook with lid off for 1-2 more minutes.
  5. Take off the heat and add in roasted peanuts.
