Introduction

Dishes that begin with a few humble ingredients often become the tastiest, most amazing at the moment bites you can put in your mouth. This is one of those dishes. Collard greens, onion, garlic, and Yukon Gold potatoes simmer in a rich broth of no chicken broth, a touch of red pepper flakes, and a generous measure of Cajun spices. Frontier Cajun Seasoning has no added salt; but it contains fennel, which is not a standard spice in Cajun spice blends. It take the blend to a whole new level. If you're a purist, use your favorite Cajun splice blend. All this dish needs is some rice and beans to serve it over and some hungry folks to eat and enjoy it.

This dish has no added salt, oil, or sugar.
