Happy New Year, my mother has taught me that you always make collard greens on January 1st.
So, since, I’m trying to eat healthy, I thought I wouldn’t eat the traditional ones with ham hocks, rather, I added some flavor with onions and garlic, and my kids loved them.
Also, last night was the first night, I used this, it was GREAT and it created storage, without additional dishes, I highly recommend it

After the oil heats up, add the garlic and onions and saute until softened.
