  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium medium red onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 whole carrots peeled and chopped to smaller bits
  • 1 whole chipotle pepper roasted and chopped
  • 1 cup vegetable stock
  • 8 cups chopped collard greens
  • Smoked sea salt to taste


  • Heat the oil in a stock pot over medium heat. Add the onions, cooking until they are translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute.
  • Add carrots and pepper and cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Turn the heat down to low and add vegetable stock and collard greens. Cover pot and allow to cook just until the greens are tender, about 30-40 minutes. Salt to taste at the very end to keep your greens from getting soggy. Serve hot.
