Nourish, Sequim’s new garden-to-plate restaurant and gathering place, is featuring a series of meals created using items from Nash’s farm share boxes each week. This recipe features collard greens, a cousin of beets, dandelion, mustard and turnips. They are loaded with beta carotene and vitamin A to help fight disease. They also have a good amount of the antioxidant vitamin C and fiber. They help fight osteoporosis by providing bones with a great dose of vitamin C.
3 cloves garlic
1/2 large yellow onion, chopped
2-3 cups vegetable broth
1 teaspoon smoked salt
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 pounds collard greens
Black pepper and hot sauce
Saute onions until tender. Add garlic and cook until onion and garlic are fragrant, 2-3 minutes.
