    Very Good
    My vegetarian and I liked this. I did not have tomatoes so didn't add them. It didn't take 40 minutes for the greens to get tender but I really enjoyed this! My first try cooking with collard greens! - 5/27/12

    I've made this recipe before and its the best collards I've ever made. A great healthy version of this dish, totally recommended. I liked to sprinkle mine with rice wine vinegar and a touch of salt on my plate, yum! - 1/6/12
