  • 12 collard green leaves, stemmed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 red pepper flake packet
  • 3/4 pounds mushrooms, chopped
  • 2 cups cooked white rice
  • 1/4 cup minced parsley leaves
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 jar marinara sauce
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Cut the thick bottom part of the stem out of the collard green leaf. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Fill a large bowl with cold water and several ice cubes. Blanch the collard leaves in the boiling water for 30 seconds and then transfer to the ice water for a 1 minute to stop the cooking. Pat dry with a paper towel and set aside.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil and onion and cook for 5-7 minutes. Stir in the garlic, red pepper flakes and mushrooms and cook until the mushrooms are browned.
