Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • Salt (to taste)
  • 1 lb collard greens or spinach
  • ¾ cup sesame seeds or unsalted peanuts
  • garlic, crushed (to taste)
  • vegetable broth (optional)



In a large saucepan, cook the collard greens or spinach in boiling water until tender, and drain excess water. Vegetable broth may be added for flavor.  Set aside.  Toast the peanuts or sesame seeds in the oven at 300°F until browned.  Remove from the oven to cool, then add salt (optional), and finely chop or grind the nuts or seeds.

In a frying pan, sauté the onions and garlic in oil until slightly browned.  Add the tomatoes and cook until tender. Then add the peanuts or sesame seeds.  Continue cooking for about 5 minutes.  Season the cooked greens with the mixture of onion, garlic, tomato, and sesame seeds or peanuts.  Sauté ingredients together for a few minutes.  Serve over hot rice.
