METHOD

Heat oil in a large wok over medium heat, add shallots and sauté 4 minutes or so, just until softened. Add collards, lemon juice, garlic powder, salt & pepper, cook another 4 minutes. Add tomatoes and beans, cook, stirring occasionally, until collards are lightly wilted or until beans and tomatoes are heated through. I like my collards al dente if you will and cooked for about 5 extra minutes. Ending cooking time will vary depending on how soft you like your collards.

Top with a squeeze of lemon and lemon-pepper seasoning if on hand.
