Collard greens and potatoes with uncheese sauce is a relatively easy to prepare vegan recipe that will serve 4-6 adults as a main meal. We usually cook the collard greens and potatoes for this recipe in a large covered dish in the microwave oven, but they can also be cooked in a wok.  The sauce is made in a high speed blender. Preparation and cooking time is about 1 hour; add another 15 minutes if using fresh collard greens. Leftovers can be stored in a covered container in the refrigerator for a few days.

Begin by washing and cleaning the fresh collard greens (if you are using them) and wash and peel the carrots and onions, and remove the eyes and bad spots from the potatoes.

If you are using frozen collard greens, place them in the large covered baking dish or wok, or chop or shred the fresh collard greens in a food processor or with a knife along with the onions, and add them to the covered baking dish or wok. Thinly slice the carrots and cut the potatoes into small cubes and add to the other ingredients in the covered dish or wok.

Cook until the collard greens, potatoes and onions are tender.

While the veggies are cooking, put the pre-cooked or canned beans, lemon juice, hot pepper, corn starch, smoke flavor, and nutritional yeast into the container of a high speed blender. Cover the container and run the blender at high speed until the contents are creamy smooth.

When the veggies are cooked, mix in the un-cheese sauce from the blender container, and cook for another 5 minutes to re-warm and blend the flavors. (If cooking in a wok lower the heat to simmer before adding the un-cheese sauce.)

Serve with a large tossed salad and enjoy!

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
