I was showing the Blues Brothers to some friends, so I wanted to think about some classical soul food to go with it.  Collard Greens looked healthy and easy to make oil-free.  A quick search online said to use kale as a substitute for collard greens, so here you are. I used Tuscan kale but any kale or leaf with a bit of chew in it should work.


1 kale (Large bunch of Kale shredded into 4-5 cm pieces)
1⁄2 Brown onion (Diced)
2 Tomatoes (Diced into 1cm pieces)
4 cloves Garlic (minced)
1 cup Vegetable stock
1⁄2 teaspoon liquid smoke (To taste)
2 teaspoons hot sauce (To taste. I used an organic jalapeno sauce.)
2 teaspoons Black Pepper (To taste, I go heavy)
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
