A delicious (and nutrient-rich) accompaniment to Fried Tilapia. The recipe was provided by Will Allen, founder and CEO of the Growing Power National Training and Community Food Center in Milwaukee.


  • 1 to 2 pounds collard greens
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil (or equal amounts butter and olive oil)
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Thoroughly wash collard greens.
  2. Roll up greens and chop them.
  3. Heat olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat and add chopped greens. Add salt and pepper to taste (you can also add a little honey).
  4. Stir-fry for about 15 minutes (less if you prefer them crunchier).
