Balsamic Glazed Collard Greens with Pine Nuts and Raisins

I had this for lunch last week after finding the recipe in The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone.  I don’t like collard greens in smoothies.  I do like using them for wraps (like these and these), but even then, only eat 3-4 leaves.  With this recipe, a cooked one, I ate the entire bunch in one sitting.

You’ll have to check out the book to get the recipe, but it is quite simple.  The balsamic vinegar helps tone down the bitterness of the greens and the sweet raisins really compliment the flavor.  Pine nuts, well they make anything better.  🙂
