It doesn't get more Gullah-Geechie than this dish! You know I've got to have a bowl of rice on the table and the addition of tender greens makes this rice pilaf even better. I like to serve it in my West African Stew or on the side of my Grilled Stuffed Whole Snapper.


Miss Brown's House Seasoning:


  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the rice and cook, toasting until the rice begins to smell nutty, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the chicken stock and some House Seasoning. Bring it to a boil; cover, reduce the heat to low and cook until the rice is tender and has absorbed all the liquid, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the butter and remaining tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion, pepper, garlic and a generous pinch of House Seasoning. Cook until just tender and beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the collards and cook until softened, 6 to 8 minutes.
  3. Once the rice is cooked and the liquid is absorbed, turn off the heat. Remove the lid and add the onions and collard green mixture. Fluff and stir gently with a fork to combine.
