Sautéed Collard Greens with Roasted Peanuts

  • FAST

Chef Sean Brock's quick and easy sautéed collard greens are bright and lemony, with a bit of heat from dried chiles and crunch from chopped roasted peanuts.

  1. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  3. 2 bunches tender young collard greens (1 1/2 pounds)—stems and ribs discarded, leaves thinly sliced
  4. 2 cups packed baby arugula (2 ounces), finely chopped
  5. 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
  6. 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  7. 4 dried arbol chiles, crumbled (2 teaspoons)
  8. Kosher salt
  9. 1/2 cup roasted peanuts, chopped
  1. In a very large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Add the garlic and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the collards and arugula in large handfuls, letting each batch wilt slightly before adding more. Cook, tossing frequently, until the collards start to soften, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the lemon zest, lemon juice and crumbled chiles, season with salt and toss to evenly coat the greens. Remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Transfer the greens to a serving platter, top with the peanuts and serve.
