sausage and greens with LouAna coconut oil

After last nights dinner of Stove Top Pilau, we sort of wanted a repeat. I had a few of the items left, so I decided to make something similar.

It was a big hit, easy and frugal.

Sausage and Greens
3 smoked beef sausage, sliced
5 slices bacon, diced
1 medium yellow onion, diced
3 cups collards, shredded
1 TBSP LouAna coconut oil
smoked paprika
red pepper flake
water or broth

In a large sauce pan, add your oil, sausage, bacon and onion. Saute until the bacon is done, add your spices, collards, water/broth and cover. Simmer for 20-30 minutes.


You could add rice or serve it over rice. I did not as I am cutting back on carbs.
