Large pot with lid
Measuring cups and spoons
1 yellow onion, sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil OR vegetable oil
1 1/4 teaspoons jerk seasoning
1/2 cup orange juice
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 pound collard greens, chopped
- Before you begin, wash your hands, surfaces, utensils, tops of cans, and vegetables.
- Add the onion, garlic, and oil to a large pot. Cook the onion and garlic over medium heat, stirring occasionally until onions are cooked and see-through (about 5 minutes).
- Add the jerk seasoning, orange juice, chicken broth, and collard greens to the pot. Stir to combine. Cover pot with lid, and turn heat up to medium-high and bring to a boil.
- Once boiling, turn the heat down to medium-low and let the collard greens simmer, stirring occasionally, until they are tender, about 30 to 45 minutes. The longer collards are cooked, the more tender they will be. Keep the lid in place when not stirring. Serve hot in bowl with broth.
- If you like your greens softer simmer the pot for up to 45 minutes.
- The broth that this recipe produces is called pot liquor! It’s full of nutrients from the greens and a delicious part of this dish.
