  • I used the ready package of chopped collard greens but you may use collard green leaves and chop it yourself. Make sure to remove any thick stems from it.
  • To drain sun dried tomatoes – If it has been in the refrigerator then microwave for 15 seconds. Then with the help of a sieve drain the excess oil form it and add to the instant pot.
  • Variation – heat 2 tbsp. olive oil in a nonstick pan or Dutch oven. Add chopped collard greens and sauté for 3-4 minutes or until well coated with oil. Add garlic, onion powder, paprika and salt to it. Sauté again. Now add the drained sun-dried tomatoes and 1 ½ cups vegetable broth. Stir and cook covered for 10 minutes or until the greens are soft and tender. Feel free to cook open at medium-high if you desire to dry it up until you reach your desired consistency.
