  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup sweet onion chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 strips vegan bacon I used Sweet Earth Bacon, but your favorite vegan bacon will work just as well., chopped
  • 4 cups chopped collard greens 6-8 large leaves will do it.
  • 1 handful of fresh parsley about 1/4 cup chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 tablespoon red miso paste
  • 1 cup water


  • In a large frying pan on medium-high heat, saute the onion, garlic, and bacon until the onion softens, about 6 minutes. Transfer to your crockpot.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients to the crockpot, and stir well. Use your spoon to break up that miso paste a bit. Cook on high for one hour, then give everything a good stir and turn the heat to low. Cook for two hours more.
