Traditional collards can take an hour or more to cook; hearty lacinato kale takes just 3 minutes. Make sure to remove the middle stems from the kale greens to avoid bitterness and thick stems to chew on. For some punch, add a dash of hot sauce or red wine vinegar. Serve with our Black-Eyed Pea Cakes with Corn Salsa for a perfect Southern vegetarian meal. As a fast and healthy option, make this side for your meatless Monday meal.
