When I was at market yesterday, there was a cooking demo. They were sauteing garlic in oil with chopped up collards. Just for a few minutes, til wilted. Then she put tahini in it. It was good. 

So just now, I chopped up garlic and I like to smash it several times to release the oils. I had sesame oil so I put the chopped garlic in the warm oil for a minute. Then added chopped collards. For just a few minutes til it's all wilted down. Then I added soy sauce. That's all I had. It is SO good! I could live on this stuff. Even my daughter liked it. 

                                               This was actually about 4 cups of collards.

  And this is it almost gone! Yum! Y'all have got to try this. You could probably add sesame seeds on top too.

Sounds amazing! My collards are not quite big enough, but it shouldn't be long until I have more than I can eat. Thanks for the recipe.

Kristin, smaller ones would probably be more tender to use. I'm going to use kale too. Love kale!

I LOVE B. sprouts! Any way I can get them. I am growing some (late) in the garden now. I like to saute them in bacon fat with chopped bacon and garlic.
