It has been asked, is this a soup? You can certainly make it one, but it is a Greens dish like Spinach. The volume of liquid is used for boiling, as the greens can be a little tough if not boiled sufficiently, the left over “Broth” makes a great Soup base or you can add vegetables and make it a soup, as the first reviewer has. Either way this is a good dish!

First time cooking collard greens, I picked this one because it has the simplest ingredients. But I'm not sure WHAT is it suppose to be (a soup?). I measured out the 3Qts of water, boiled down a little bit. I'm going to add cooked sliced carrots to it and make it a soup. (Tastes a bit like spinach, but not as strong flavor).

I was really surprised at how good the flavors were together -- a great alternative to the neverending pork-flavored collard greens. I used a 1-lb bag of prewashed and chopped collards, and a single can of chicken broth instead of all of the water and bouillon, stuffed into a 4-qt pot and stirred after about 5 minutes when it had time to wilt some. Twenty minutes was plenty of cooking time, leaving the collards a beautiful green and still intact, but not at all tough. Using less liquid made the flavors more intense, and I'm sure a whole lot less salty than 6 bouillon cubes! My teenager actually scraped his plate.
