Number of Servings: 6


    Collards, 1.5 cup, chopped (remove)
    *Mustard greens, fresh, 1 cup, chopped (remove)
    Turnip Greens, 1 cup, chopped (remove)
    Butter, unsalted, 3 tbsp (remove)
    Olive Oil, 3 tbsp (remove)
    Onions, raw, .75 cup, chopped (remove)
    Garlic, 2 cloves (remove)
    *4C Breadcrumbs, Panko Plain, .75 cup (remove)
    Raisins, .5 cup (not packed) (remove)


Heat a large skillet over medium heat, add butter and oil. When the butter is melted, add the onions and cook for about 5 minutes or until onions are clear and soft. Add the garlic, cook for about 30 seconds and add the panko and raisins. Stir the panko around the skillet so it will take in the golden colour from the butter. Season with salt and add the collards. Stir it around the skillet until cooked but still bright green, about 3 minutes. Do not feel tempted to cook the greens longer, or they will be overcooked.
