Collard Greens with Coconut Milk is a great twist on the traditional collard greens. Coconut milk gives it a slight sweetness and nutty flavor.

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is a week away?  I’ve been sharing Thanksgiving recipes all month long (like my Whipped Chipotle Sweet Potatoes, Dry Brined Chicken and Cranberry and Almond Jeweled Rice) and have been planning how to roll out content but somehow IRL I thought I had an extra week.  For some odd reason, my blog calendar and my real life calendar were not the same.  With just a week left I’ve rolling over a few more recipes just in time for you to add it to your holiday menu like this amazing Collard Greens with Coconut Milk.

We’ve been making collard greens with coconut milk for more than a decade and it is amazing! Don’t get me wrong, I love collard greens cooked without coconut milk and have shared a pressure cooker collard greens in the past.  I also love it with a big piece of neck bone or smoked turkey wing but today I skipped the meat and went vegetarian instead.  If you would like to add smoked wing keep in mind that it will increase the cooking time.

Collard greens can be a bit on the tough and bitter side but a little bit of love makes it amazing and these collard greens with coconut milk got a whole lot of love!  A great way to use up the leftover collard greens(if there’s any left) would be in cook up rice! I always have to have greens on my Thanksgiving table and will be making some version of it this year…I still haven’t planned my menu just yet but these collard greens with coconut milk may make it to the table.  Be sure to follow me on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and Pinterest!  I will be adding new videos to my YouTube channel so be sure to subscribe!
