Collard Greens & Rice or Lentils

Peggy Sue Ross


This has been a family favorite for many years made with rice. We are now eating 'Slow Carb' and substitute Red Lentils for rice and still love it! Make it without the sausage for a side dish or with the sausage for a main dish.

Great on a cold night with little time to cook!
