    Excellent. This is a versatile dish. Collard greens and a few other greens like chard were used, as well as the sweet potato with peel. Coconut water was used and the remaining ounces were a nice drink. This became a very filling meal; hours later and I am still satisfied. It should freeze well - 3/9/09

  • This is delicious. I made it for dinner last night and am excited to enjoy the leftovers for lunch. I made the recipe as directed, but I can see how it would easily adapt to what you have on hand. - 2/12/13
