Sweet Balsamic Collards With Pine Nuts [Recipe]

Sweet Balsamic Collards With Pine Nuts

Recipe from Healthy Cooking Camp

Servings: 2, Time: 7 minutes


  •       1 bunch collard greens, deveined, washed and chopped
  •       1 teaspoon extra virgin coconut oil
  •       1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  •       1 small handful yellow raisins
  •       1 handful pine nuts
  •       Sea salt and pepper, to taste


Start by lightly steaming the collard greens for about 2-3 minutes

Then heat up a pan with your extra virgin coconut oil.  Add in your collard greens, season with salt and pepper and sauté lightly for about 1 minute.  Then add the balsamic vinegar and raisins.  Mix well to let the flavors marry and cook for about 1 more minute.

Put greens in a beautiful bowl and garnish with pine nuts.


  1. Not into collards?  This recipe works great with any dark leafy green.  Try kale or swiss chard
  2. Swap pine nuts for slivered almonds, they’re a little more budget friendly
  3. Out of regular raisins?  We also love currants, dried cranberries, chopped dried figs and yellow raisins
  4. No extra virgin coconut oil?  Sesame oil works well with dark leafies
  5. Want to make this a complete meal?  Layer a slice of toasted sourdough, the collards and pine nuts and an egg cooked to your liking
