"I made this impromptu for my family, and everyone freaked out. It contains no meat, so it's perfect for vegetarians or those who are trying to cut down on meat. It's amazingly simple to make...no more than 15 minutes, start to finish."

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • If you cannot find gomasio, simply buy sesame seeds and toast them lightly in a dry skillet. Then transfer seeds to a spice grinder or mortar and pestle and coarsely grind with a ratio of 1/4 cup sesame seeds to 1 teaspoon sea salt.
  • I prefer to cook the collard greens at a medium-high temp for a short period of time, thereby preserving the pungent flavor of the greens.
  • Onion can be added to this dish if fried for five minutes before adding the collards, but I enjoy the character of this dish without them.

It was, as advertised, quick and easy. But the collards tasted bitter. Maybe it was my batch. I was disappointed.

Just made this, super fast and easy. Didn't have gomasio, used a little shiso furikake and dash of sea salt. Delicious!

This was only the second time I've cooked collards. First time, my wife wouldn't eat them. This time, she had seconds. Caveats: I didn't have mirin, so I used sake + raw sugar. I didn't have gomasio, so I used furikake, and only 1T of that. I did use the optional onions. I was quite pleased, especially since my large bunch of collards cost 29 cents.
