Coconut Braised Collards


  • 1 large bunch collard greens, coarsely chopped (include stems!) (I aim for 2”x1/2”, ish)
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 bunch (6 to 8) scallions, thinly sliced
  • 250g unsweetened coconut milk (one of the little aroy-d boxes)
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce (japanese, or light chinese)


  1. Fry scallions in oil+butter until soft, about a minute.

  2. Add collards, continue to stir just until they’re wilted.

  3. Add coconut milk and soy sauce. Simmer, uncovered, stirring frequently, until done. I really like to push until the collards are dark and soft and the liquid is pretty much gone other than an oily creamy sheen.

  4. Season with salt and pepper.
