Sauteed Collard Greens with Corn and Onion


We had this with dinner several nights ago and I am just now finding time to write about it! School is already taking up pretty much all of my free time and classes just started!

Anyway, I had lots of collard greens that needed to be eaten so this recipe just evolved in an effort to not have to throw away any food ;).We ate it as a side with chicken and sweet potatoes and it turned into a delicious, colorful meal!

{Most of the} Ingredients:

1 Tbsp butter

–1 Tbsp olive oil

–1/2 red onion, chopped

–3 cloves garlic, chopped

–1/2 bunch of collard greens

–juice from 1/2 lemon

–salt and pepper to taste

–1/3 can of corn (was a last minute decision!)

Directions: Heat butter and olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add garlic. Then add collard greens and onions (note: collard greens take slightly longer to cook than many other green lettuce-types). Stir until onions begin to look translucent and collard start looking greener and tender. Add corn and stir for another couple minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!

(And then there was corn!)
