Collard Greens and Rice Recipe

I know you probably weren't expecting anything remotely resembling a vegetable on this site. But  you'd be wrong.
Collard greens aren't vegetables. I don't know what food group they are in, but they aren't a vegetable. They are more like a cross between a salad and a V-8.
I happen to like them, so I grow them in my garden. If you look at the picture.. that's where the collards in my recipes come from.  I just walk out to the Garden and pick some.  Yeah... it's what men do sometimes. Easy Peasy to make... and really good.

Ingredients For Collards and Rice

  • some long-grain rice
  • some salt
  • some chopped collard leaves, unless you'd rather just tear em up by hand.
  • some sugar
  • some pepper
  • some chicken boullion cubes

Preparation Is Everything! 

  1. Bring the water to a boil in a pot big enough to hold it
  2. Add the chopped collard greens, a handful at a time and stir it after each time.
  3. Put some salt and pepper in it.
  4. Add the sugar and stir.
  5. Turn the heat down to about 1/4 and let it simmer/semi boil till it's done. (about one quarter of a football game)
  6. Add enough Chicken Boullion cubes to make you think it'll taste good.
  7. Add enough rice in it to soak up most of the water.  (That's about half as much rice as there is water)
  8. Let the rice cook during the next quarter.... kind os simmering/half boiling.
  9. If you put too much rice in the first time...add some water.  If you got too much water...add some rice. 
  10. Once it' looks ready... get you a bowl full of it and eat it.
How hard it that?

About Potato Chip Sandwich

According to some people, men can't tell time, can't follow directions and can't cook. That's simply not true. The owner and author of the site, me..  can cook. This site is simply a way for me to keep up with my recipes without putting it into my other 10 or so blogs. Everything is Google-ized, so it's connected to all my other stuff. I suggests you try the BBQ. This site gets it's name from road trips when I was in my 20's. By the time we would head home...all we could afford was a loaf of bread and some potato chips.
