Collard Greens With Panfried Walnuts - Online

Here is a link to the RECIPE.  In short, I used this recipe from Epicurious.com as a guideline, and toyed with the proportions of the ingredients to taste.

Be mindful of your nuts (no, perv. not those).  My walnuts got a little on the well-done side (suppose thats my euphemism for saying "burnt")  since I left them unattended as I chifonnaded my collard greens.  I de-stemmed the collard greens, stacked up a few, then cut them into little ribbons.

I described to NMcL the texture of collard greens as being thick, tough spinach.  They were chewier greens than what I was used to.  Because of their thickness, I'd recommend boiling them first to make them tender (love me tender), as the recipe suggests.  I want to experiment with all types of greens (kale, collard greens, Swiss chard, etc.) because they really pack a nutritional punch!

  2. You are so fucking pretentious it makes me sick. Here I wanted to use my walnuts with some greens I bought and you write this. I hope you are proud of yourself. Also, eat the whole thing, if you are boiling it the stem will also tenderize.
