Today I will be making stir fry collard green. This is very nutritious, delicious and looks great. Stir fry collard green makes a great side dish to complement any meal. This recipe will serve 4-6. For this recipe we need: 1 bunch of collard green This was 8 ounce and have about 7 leaves. And as you see these leaves are big. So it could be 1-2 leaves less or more but after chopping this will make 4 cups of chopped collard green. 1 tablespoon of oil 1 teaspoon of cumin seeds (jeera) About 3/4 teaspoon of salt, adjust to your taste. 1 teaspoon of fine shredded ginger. I like to use the zester. 1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice 1/8 teaspoon of black pepper And 4 whole red chillies. I have already washed the leaves.
As you see there is a heavy vein in center of the leaf so we will have to take this out. So cut the leaf from both sides of the veins. And stack it together. Just keep stacking them. So I have stacked all the leaves together. Now we roll them as tight as we can. And slice them thin. After cutting collard green looks really good. Like thin slices or ribbons. And I am just going to stir fry them over high heat. Use heavy bottom wide pan. Heat is on, medium high. So let’s start cooking. So first I will add the oil. And wait till oil is moderately hot. Now add the cumin seeds. And red chilli And stir for few seconds. And add the collard green. Add the salt.
And ginger. Now increase the heat to medium high. And keep stirring. It should take about 3-4 minutes. And I really like the color of the leaves. This took only 2 minutes and collard greens are ready. And now I am going to add the black pepper. And lemon juice. Mix it and turn off the heat. Collard green is ready to serve. Collard green is ready to serve. This makes a great side dish. I also like to garnish the plain rice with collard green. It gives a beautiful color and texture. You can also make a grill cheese with cheddar cheese and collard green. The another way I make the open face sandwich. Toast the bread and spread the cream cheese and then just garnish it with collard green. And it looks great and very healthy. Enjoy. Anyway you serve it will taste good.
