January 21, 2014


Author Notes: I had some collard greens and poblanos from my local farmer's market and wanted to create a way to blend these delicious flavors together! Here it is! Dana Schrenk

Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
  • 8 Cloves of Garlic (sliced)
  • 1 Yellow Onion (Chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • 2 bunches Collard Greens (stems removed & chopped)
  • Salt (Generous Pinch)
  • 4 Grounds with a Pepper Grinder
  • 6 Red Poblano Peppers

Directions

  1. First, preheat the oven to 425°F
  2. While the oven is preheating stem, seed and quarter the poblanos. Next spread the peppers out on a baking dish skin down, and throw in 4 or 5 cloves of garlic. Drizzle with EVOO and a pinch of salt.
  3. When the oven is preheated place the peppers in the oven. Bake the peppers for 10 min and flip them skin up. Continue baking for 10-15 min until the skins start bubbling and look lightly charred.
  4. Once the oil is hot toss in the chopped onion and saute for about 5 minutes. Add in the sliced garlic and cumin and saute for 2 more minutes.
  5. Remove the peppers from the oven and place the peppers on top of the greens and serve. Makes an excellent side dish with grilled meat. Enjoy!
