Servings 4


  • olive oil
  • 1/2 onion sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic sliced
  • 1-2 lbs collard greens cut into thirds
  • 1 1/2 cups red wine
  • 1 tspb Dijon or horseradish mustard dice
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 Cajun Spices Equal Mix of Oregano, Basil, Paprika, Thyme and a pinch of Cayenne
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce


  • If you prefer, you can strip away the stems of the collard greens, however, I like them and keep them on. cut them into 1 inch pieces if you prefer.
  • In a large, coverable pot or pan, saute onion and garlic in 1-2 tbsp olive oil for about 3 minutes until onion is translucent.
  • Add the collard greens, red wine, mustard, honey, cajun spices and Worcestershire Sauce and cover.
  • Once collard greens have wilted and shrunk, stir to make sure all of the greens have been submerged in liquid.
  • Re-cover and bring to a simmer for 45 minutes.
  • Serve
