Number of Servings: 4


    1 pound collard greens, shredded*
    3 large cloves garlic, minced
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1/2 cup of vegetable or chicken broth
    3 Tbsp. beer (optional) not included in calorie
    1/2 tsp.smoked paprika
    1/2 lime
    sea salt, to taste


1. The easiest way to chop the greens is to stack the leaves, roll them tightly like a cigar, and chop the cylinder into thin shreds. You can also strip the rib if you like before chopping.
2. Place a large pot over medium-high heat. Once hot, add oil and saute garlic with a pinch of salt until translucent. Then add the broth to the pot.
3. Add greens and toss to coat in oil. Pour in beer, add paprika & salt to taste, and continue to toss greens, while allowing alcohol to cook off. They will cook quickly, and should still be tender when you remove them from pan.
4. Divide between plates and squeeze lime juice over before serving.
