Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information.

If you have approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes to spend in the kitchen, Collard greens with white beans and sausage might be an outstanding gluten free recipe to try. One serving contains 701 calories, 36g of protein, and 31g of fat. For $1.96 per serving, you get a side dish that serves 4. It is brought to you by Foodista. 1 person has made this recipe and would make it again. Not a lot of people really liked this Southern dish. If you have lime zest, onions, collard greens, and a few other ingredients on hand, you can make it. With a spoonacular score of 74%, this dish is pretty good. Stewed Collard Greens And White Beans, Collard Greens And White Beans Quesadilla, and Collard Greens and Beans are very similar to this recipe.

Riesling, Sparkling Wine, and Zinfandel are my top picks for Collard Greens. In general, there are a few rules that will help you pair wine with southern food. Food-friendly riesling or sparkling white wine will work with many fried foods, while zinfandel is great with barbecued fare. The J.J. Prum Graacher Himmelreich Spatlese Riesling with a 4.2 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 56 dollars per bottle.

J.J. Prum Graacher Himmelreich Spatlese Riesling

"A tad reduced in aroma, this young white has plenty of intensity, offering lime, peach and slate flavors matched to a silky texture. It's awkward today, needing time to integrate. Best from 2008 through 2020. 1,500 cases made." –BS

Instructions

  1. Soak your beans over night.
  2. The next day, slice 1 onion in half and slice the other onion.
  3. Place beans, onion halves, carrot, thyme and rosemary sprig and bay leaf in a large pot; cover the beans with 1500 ml of water.
  4. Crumble in the vegetable cube, cover and bring to a boil.
  5. Reduce the flame; simmer about 30 minutes over low heat until the beans are nearly tender.
  6. Drain the beans and reserve the cooking liquid. Discard all of the other solids. Set aside.
  7. Saute sliced onion and garlic in butter and olive oil for 6 minutes over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally.
  8. Add the collards (stems cut and leaves torn into small pieces) and cook, tossing, until slightly wilted.
  9. Add half of the reserved bean cooking liquid, cover and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the collards are tender, about 50 minutes.
  10. Add the beans, sausage and the remaining bean cooking liquid to the pot and cook for 15 minutes.
  11. Just before serving, stir in the lime zest and juice. Season with pepper.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Before you pass up garlic because you don't want the bad breath that comes with it, keep in mind that the compounds that cause garlic breath also offer a lot of health benefits. Garlic has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. If you really want to get the most health benefits out of your garlic, choose Spanish garlic, which contains the most allicin (one of garlic's most beneficial compounds).

  • If you can, choose grassfed butter for a better nutritional profile—more vitamins, a favorable omega 3/6 ratio, etc.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

  • Fresh herbs can be expensive, so don't let them go to waste. If you have any leftovers, you might be able to freeze them. The Kitchn recommends freezing hardy herbs like rosemary and thyme in olive oil, while Better Homes and Gardens suggests using freezer bags to freeze basil, chives, mint, and more.

Cooking Tips

  • The average fresh lime contains 2 tablespoons of lime juice (just in case you are substituting bottled lime juice).

  • Butter's incredible flavor has made it an extremely popular cooking fat, but it is important to know that butter has the lowest smoke point of almost any cooking fat. This means butter literally starts to smoke at a lower temperature than most other fats between 250-350 degrees Fahrenheit. So while butter is great for cooking at lower temperatures, you should probably use canola oil, coconut oil, or another oil with a higher smoke point for frying and other high temperature cooking.

  • Carrots can be stored in the fridge for 2 to 3 weeks. The starch in the carrots will turn to sugar over time, but this is not a problem, they'll just taste sweeter. The academy lesson about carrots contains more useful information.

  • If you're using olive oil to cook at high temperatures, make sure that the olive oil you're using has a high smoke point because heating an oil past its smoke point can ruin the flavor and even release harmful compounds into your dish. Many people recommend saving extra-virgin olive oil for cold dishes or for adding the finishing touch to a warm dish. You could also use canola oil, coconut oil, or another good high-temperature oil to be on the safe side.

Green Tips

  • Beans freeze well, so don't throw out your leftovers!

  • Since pesticide residue is most likely to be stored in the skin/rind, it might be advisable to buy organic limes if you're using them for zest.
