Asian Collard Greens
- 1 large bunch collard greens (about 7 large leaves)
- 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil
- ⅛ teaspoon pink Himalayan or sea salt
- 1 teaspoon grated ginger root
- 1 teaspoon Bragg’s liquid aminos or coconut aminos (use ½ teaspoon for lower sodium)
- ½ teaspoon sesame oil
- One scoop Organixx Clean Sourced Collagens powder (omit for vegan option)

- Slice out the middle hard stem of your collard greens. Stack the leaves on top of each other. Roll the leaves up together into one large roll. With a knife, slice thinly. Chop up a few more times until you have easy-to-eat-sized pieces.
- In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add in the oil. Heat oil until hot, then add in sliced greens and sprinkle with salt. Cook the greens for about 4 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally (or until desired doneness).
- Add in the grated ginger, liquid aminos, sesame oil, and collagens powder if using. Stir to coat. Garnish with sesame seeds. Serve up warm and enjoy
