1/2 cup olive oil

1 Spanish onion, small diced

3 cloves garlic, chopped

2 bunches collard greens, washed, and cut in 1/2-inch strips

1 cup golden raisins

1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Heat an 8-quart saucepan over high heat. When very hot, add the oil, onions, and garlic, sauteing quickly for 1 minute. When the onions just start to turn golden, add the collard greens, raisins, and almonds. Season with salt and pepper, and add a little water if necessary, for a little steam. Saute for about 5 to 6 minutes more, and adjust seasoning, to taste.
