Pulled this recipe from VegWeb.com. I also used vegan bouillon cubes and cannellini beans (white kidney beans), but this website doesn't have them in its database so I had to add those separately

Recipe Ingredients for Smokin' Collard Greens

7 oz collard greens
1/2 medium yellow onion
1/2 large red bell pepper
1/2 large green bell pepper
1 tbsp ground ginger
3 cloves of garlic

Recipe Directions for Smokin' Collard Greens

  1. Copied from the website:

  2. First, cut the tough stems out of the center of the greens. Next, cut greens into 1/2 to 1" strips. Then 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.

  3. In a large Dutch oven, sauté the onion and peppers in oil until they have begun to soften, then add the ginger and garlic.

  4. 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.
