collard greens (no added fat)

Collard Greens (I love their flavor and without the fat!!)

2 lbs collard greens, tough stems discarded, leaves chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 large garlic clove, minced (or a tablespoon or so of minced garlic from jar)
red pepper flakes, a pinch
Salt, a couple pinches
Sugar, a couple pinches

1. Holding onto the stem with one hand , wrap your other hand around the stem and pull down--this takes off the large part of the stem. After you have done a few of these , roll the leaves and chop. (there are youtube videos on how to do this ie here
2. Place chopped onion, garlic, red pepper flakes, salt and sugar in a large pot and cover with water. Cook for 3-4 minutes.
3. Add the greens and add a bit more water. Steam for 10-20 minutes stirring occasionally to blend flavors. (If the collards are really huge tough ones you may have to cook longer).
