Vegan Collard Greens are a little unheard of in the south. I know collard greens are a vegetable, but they are usually cooked with meat. My grandmother used pork and fat back to season her collard greens, but the healthier generations use smoked turkey parts. But collard greens really don’t need meat to taste good, so today we will make meatless vegan collard greens suitable for vegans, vegetarians, and meatless Monday-ers everywhere.
