Kind-Of Marinated Collard Greens

I went to Whole Foods yesterday and saw that they had Marinated Collard Greens.  That sounded DELICIOUS and so I knew I had to make it. I figured for the price I could make it way cheaper.

And so I did.  I found a recipe here and it is a raw vegan recipe.  I didn't have time to let it marinate as long as they recommended so I changed it up a bit...

1 bag, collard greens (its already chopped up and washed, score!)
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 large orange bell pepper, cut into thin strips
6 garlic cloves, minced
5 green onions, thinly sliced
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup parsley
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 Tbs olive oil
4 Tbs soy sauce
salt and black pepper to taste

In a large pan over high heat, spray the pan and cook the onion until just soft.  Chop 1/2 of the garlic and add it to the pan.  Add collards 1 handful at a time until you have added about 1/2 the bag and stir constantly until the collards turn a bright green color (only a few minutes).  Take off the stove and put into another large container.

Add the rest of the garlic and collards from the bag, orange pepper, coconut, and parsley. 

In a small bowl combine lemon juice, olive oil, soy sauce, and minced garlic. 

Pour over the collard greens and veggies. Using your hands massage the dressing into the veggies well.
Eat right away or refrigerate at least an hour.  Enjoy!!
