Instant Pot Collard Greens

Traditional collard greens recipe requires boiling them for an hour in a pot on the stove, which means that not only do you have to wait an hour, but also that you have to be “babysitting” a pot of boiling water.  That’s the worst thing about cooking on the stove – it holds you hostage in the kitchen.  As usual, Instant Pot comes to the rescue!

How To Cook Collard Greens In The Instant Pot

With the Instant Pot, you truly “set it and forget it”.  Stuff the collard green into the Instant Pot, pour some water, press the button and you are free to leave!

The basic Instant Pot collard greens version is vegan – just collard greens and water 🙂  Of course, you can add any flavorings your like! You can use chicken stock instead of water, you can add cooked hamhocks or smoked turkey together with collard greens to the Instant Pot, or you can make it with bacon.  For bacon collard greens, first saute chopped bacon in the Instant Pot on a Saute setting, then add water and collard greens and cook as usual.
