  • Summary

    Southern-style collard greens get their signature richness from being braised with ham hocks or bacon. For a meatless flavor boost, use an umami-packed Parmesan rind instead (find one made without rennet for a strictly vegetarian version). The rind will hold its shape as the greens simmer, so you can remove it from the pot in one piece when done.

    Ingredients

    • 1 Parmesan rind (3 to 4 inches long)
    • 3 pounds (about 4 bunches) collard greens, stalks removed, leaves cut into 1-inch pieces
    • Pinch red-pepper flakes, or more to taste
    • 3 tablespoons white-wine vinegar
    • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
    • Hot sauce, for serving (optional)
