     Growing up in the South we had greens practically every week.  Here
is a fast and simple collard greens recipe I created.  It should work
equally well with frozen or fresh greens and is not limited to just
collards (although the pungent bitterness of collards are my favorite).

Collard Stir Fry

1 pkg. chopped collard greens
2 or 3 cloves of chopped garlic
1 tsp. of sesame seeds
PAM or equivalent
Low-fat ramen noodles

Unfreeze the collards enough where they are crumbly.  Pre-heat a wok or iron
skillet for about 1 minute or until it is sufficiently hot.  Lightly spray
PAM on wok or skillet.  Add garlic, stirring semi-frequently.  Add collards
about 20 to 30 seconds later, stirring frequently.  Wait until collards have
melted and add sesame seeds, stirring frequently about 1 to 2 minutes more.
Serve over noodles that have been microwaved or boiled.  The entire cooking
process should take no more than 15 minutes.
