  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 14 oz can artichoke hearts drained, rinsed, and chopped
  • 1 cup Natures Green's Collard Greens chopped
  • 2 tbs olive oil

  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast plus more for topping
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp both salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Soak the cashews in boiling water to soften for 10 minutes. Alternatively, you could soak in room temperature water overnight.

  3. Add in the chopped artichoke hearts and chopped collards to the garlic. Season with salt and pepper and let cook until the greens have begun to wilt.

  4. Meanwhile, drain the cashews and add to a high speed blender with the water, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, smoked paprika, apple cider vinegar, and 1/2 tsp salt. Blend until smooth.

  5. Pour the sauce into the skillet with the collard greens and artichoke hearts. Mix it together. 

  6. Place the skillet into the preheated oven and bake for about 5 minutes or until the edges have begun to make a crust. 

  7. Top with a sprinkle of nutritional yeast. Enjoy warm with crackers or sliced vegetables.
