Apricot Collards

Ingredients:

  • collard greens
  • coconut oil (olive + avocado works too)
  • cumin
  • salt
  • garlic granules
  • dried apricots
  • roasted garlic

This recipe is so good. You probably won’t want collard greens any other way after eating this. Start by cleaning and chopping greens into really tiny small strips. I put them in a bunch rolled them up and cut them with kitchen shears/scissors.

Then in a large bowl combine greens with a little bit of coconut oil – (like maybe a teaspoon or so), sprinkle a little salt, cumin, and garlic granules (to taste). Mix all together. Then in the pan put another teaspoon or two of coconut oil (depending on how many greens you have), sliced roasted garlic and sliced dried apricots (I had these already on hand because I’m trying to cut sugar and these are a really sweet and good alternative to gummy bears…lol).

The roasted garlic I had already pre-cooked a day earlier. Its good to always have this handy as it goes with a lot of stuff and its good for you! Mix the sliced apricots and garlic in the med-hot oil, then place the greens in and sauté them until the desired tenderness. No more than 5-10 minutes.

Last, I put them in the air fryer on low for 5 mins. Be careful not to over cook in the saute process or burn in the air-fryer.
