We loved this dish! We didn't have mushrooms - but we didn't notice the absence of them. very good - and the lemon juice gave the dish a flavor that we associated with vinegar in collard greens - complemented it very well! Will definitely make again! Husband made his own cheese grits to go with this dish.

Our friend Marsha prepared this recipe for a mid-week get together. With trepidation we sampled the offerings and to our delight were amazed to find that we oohed and ahhed over every bite!

Made this for my son's birthday and my family said it was possibly the best dish I've ever made. I was afraid it might be a little too

Quite delicious and easy. Nice blend of flavors. I used my own garlic cheese grits recipe. Served with a tossed salad and rosemary ciabata rolls. Will make it again for two of us or a dinner party.
