Ingredients
2 tablespoons olive oil
6 garlic cloves, minced
2 shallots, finely chopped (about 1/4 cup)
2 homemade or store bought sausages, chopped (vegan or not!)
Generous pinch red pepper flakes
1 bunch collards, chopped, rough stems removed
1/4 cup vegetable broth
1 tablespoon soy sauce
Lemon slices to serve

Step by Step Instructions
  1. Preheat a large pan over medium heat. Saute the garlic and shallots in oil for about 3 minutes. Add the sausages and red pepper flakes and saute for another 5 minutes or so, until sausages are lightly browned. It’s ok if they break up a bit; in fact, it’s good if they do.
  2. Add collards, broth, and soy sauce and use tongs to stir. Cover the pan to get the collards to cook faster and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Once they’ve cooked down, remove the lid, turn the heat up, and use tongs to stir the collards and sausage around for about 3 minutes. The liquid should evaporate significantly. Serve with slices of lemon.
