Recipes–Collards Al Brodo

Al Brodo is really an Italian soup made with greens.  The most popular green is escarole for it gives a full-bodied, slightly bitter flavor common in Italian cooking.

When made with collard greens, the soup is a lot sweeter, but no less intense and interesting.

Collards Al Brodo
* 1 lb. collards (approx.), coarsely chopped
* 2 cups of water (approx.)
* 1 low salt vegan bouillon cube
* 1 tbsp. (approx.) Bay spice
* 10 grindings fresh black pepper
* 1 lg. egg
* 1/4 cup freshly-grated Parmesan cheese
- Boil the water with the bouillon cube until it dissolves

- Add the collards, Bay Spice, salt and pepper

- Boil at low heat for about 20-30 min. until greens are tender

- Taste and add more Bay Spice, salt, pepper if necessary

- Turn up the heat, crack an egg into the boiling liquid

- When egg is cooked (the white comes together), place all in bowls

-  Sprinkle with grated cheese and serve.
