Cook Time 1 hour 20 minutes


  • ½ small yellow onion diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2-3 cups vegetable broth I only used 2 cups
  • 1 teaspoon applewood smoked salt or any kind of smoked salt
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 lbs collard greens
  • black pepper
  • hot sauce


  • Coat a large deep skillet or pot with vegetable oil.
  • Saute onions until almost tender over medium heat and then add in garlic.
  • Cook until onion and garlic are fragrant, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add in vegetable broth.
  • Season broth with smoked salt and red pepper flakes.
  • Taste and adjust the seasonings if needed. Make sure it’s to your liking because this is how your greens will taste.
  • Bring to a simmer and reduce heat.
  • Add in the greens. Green will wilt down as they cook.
  • Simmer for 1 hr to 1 hr 30 mins. Do not boil. Add more vegetable broth if needed. May need more or less time so be sure to check them after 30-45 minutes. When done, greens will be dark green, tender and will not have a raw taste.
  • Add in more smoked salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes and hot sauce, if desired.
  • Add hot sauce or vinegar if desired.
