Potatoes and Collard Greens with Vegan Sausage

No recipe image available.Greens often come out on top of healthy food lovers’ must-eat lists. The dark leafy greens are still crave-worthy in March, until such time as the lighter and leafier spring greens arrive.

Recipe Ingredients:

4 medium-large Yukon gold or red-skinned potatoes
1 large sweet potato
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 to 4 cloves garlic, minced
1 good-sized bunch collard greens or kale
2 links Tofurkey or Field Roast vegan sausage, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
1/4 cup dry white wine or water
Leaves from 2 sprigs fresh rosemary, or 1 to 2 teaspoons dried rosemary leaves, to taste
1 teaspoon sweet paprika
1/4 teaspoon dried hot red pepper flakes, or to taste
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Cooking Directions:

  1. Cook, bake, or microwave the potatoes and sweet potatoes until they can be pierced with a fork but still firm. When cool enough to handle, cut in half lengthwise, then cut into 1/2-inch-thick half circles.
  2. Cut away the thick midribs from the greens and cut the leaves in half lengthwise. Rinse well, then, stacking several leaves at a time, cut them into strips.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large skillet. Add the garlic and sauté over low heat until golden.
  4. Add the potatoes, collards, sausage, and wine. Turn the heat up to medium high and cook, stirring frequently, until the collards are bright green and tender-crisp and the potatoes and sausage are touched with golden spots here and there.
  5. Sprinkle in the rosemary, paprika, and red pepper flakes and cook for two to three minutes longer, stirring frequently. Season with salt and ground black pepper and serve.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.
