Serves 4 to 6

2 garlic cloves, minced
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

What You Do:

1. In a large frying pan over medium heat, combine collards, coconut oil, onion, 1 teaspoon salt, garlic, and ground cloves and sauté until collards begin to soften, about 6 minutes.

2. Add parsley, sage, rosemary, coconut milk, almond milk, nutritional yeast, and remaining 1 teaspoon salt and bring to a steady simmer. Let cook about 7 minutes, then gradually add in almond meal. Cook until thickened and place in a serving dish. Serve warm.

Chef’s Tip: If you happen to have any of this dish leftover, freeze it. The next time you’re craving something a little decadent for dinner, but don’t want to cook much, thaw the creamed collards, thin with a little unsweetened non-dairy milk, and warm over medium heat for a quick, tasty pasta sauce.
