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!

This collard greens recipe is delicious and so easy! Not only does this make a great New Year's Day recipe, it will be a recipe you want to make year round. Beef broth adds a great savory flavor to the rice and collard greens. Crushed red pepper brings just a bit of heat. We loved the smoked sausage addition to make this a main dish. Super yummy!
