1 Bag of chopped collard greens (in the produce section of grocery store)
1 Ham hock (in the pork section of your grocery store) DO NOT leave this out!
1/2 Yellow onion chopped
1 Garlic Clove minced
1 Box Veggie Stock
Drizzle of Olive Oil for Sauteing Onion and Garlic
1/2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
1/2 Tbsp onion and garlic powder
1 Tsp mustard powder
1 Tsp cumin
Pinch of red pepper flakes
2-3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
Salt & Pepper to taste
In a large pot or dutch oven add olive oil and onion. Saute on medium heat until soft. Add garlic - cook one additional minute.
Add the ham hock and remaining ingredients.
Using a wooden spoon, push greens down making sure they are almost covered with liquid. (you may need to add a little bit of water)
Cover and let simmer until greens are tender, stirring occasionally.
*I cook mine about 45 min to an hour.
