Happy Saturday folks!

I'm finally back in L.A. and after going to four cities in five days, it was awesome to sleep in my own bed!  It was a very exciting, exhausting, enlightening and exhiliarting week away!  Now, it's time to get back to the business that is Veggin'!  I missed blogging two days this week which is unheard of for me, but I'm trying to learn balance and know it's okay to rest when necessary!  I will try I said- LOL!  I really feel I'm missing something when I don't write. 

Anyway, I wanted to post a recipe in honor of my meal at Soul Vegetarian yesterday for lunch.  My colleague and I were able to stop back through there for some grub before heading to the airport in Atlanta.  When I was living there, this was defnitely one of my go-to spots, so it was great to go back for some more goodness for the soul.  I had the mock meatloaf, mac'n'cheese and greens and it was soooo delicious! We also each snagged a piece of Strawberry cake for the plane.  I found the following "smokin' collard greens recipe on vegweb posted by veggielove that got rave reviews!  Let's check it out!


INGREDIENTS (use vegan versions):

2 bunches collard greens, destemmed and cut to 1" strips

1/2 medium yellow onion, chopped

1/2 large red bell pepper, chopped

1/2 large green bell pepper, chopped

1 tablespoon minced ginger

3 garlic cloves, minced

3 veggie bouillon cubes


Transfer greens to a large bowl and submerge them in water to clean. I usually triple wash them just to make sure they are clean. The greens are clean when the water runs clear. Set greens aside.

In a large Dutch oven, sauté the onion and peppers in oil until they have begun to soften, then add the ginger and garlic.
Add 5 cups of water and bouillon cubes and greens. Bring to boil and simmer on low for about 2 1/2 hours or until greens reach desired tenderness.


  1. There's a Soul Veg here in DC. Have you ever been?

    I love collard greens, always have! These days I tend to sautee them, but there is nothing like greens that have been simmering on the stove for hours.

    I'll definitely have to try out your version.

  2. Hi Luciana!!

    No, I haven't! When I come home next, I'll have to see if you're available so we can go! :-)


    Yes, this version sounds great!
