Units Scale


  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1-inch piece of fresh ginger, minced or grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 10 to 12 cups chopped kale or collard greens

Peanut Butter Sauce


  1. Preheat a large skillet or sauté pan over medium heat.
  2. Add chopped onion to the hot pan and dry sauté for 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Stir in chopped bell pepper and tomato. Continue cooking for another 3 to 4 minutes until tomatoes start to break down.
  4. Add minced garlic and ginger, and stir to combine.
  5. Stir in smoked paprika, onion powder, and garlic powder and cook for another minute. Your kitchen should smell amazing.
  6. Add chopped kale or collard greens, cover, and allow the greens to wilt without overcooking. They should be bright green, slightly tender, but with a bit of crunch. About 3 to 5 minutes should do it.
  7. While greens are wilting, prepare the peanut butter sauce.
  8. In a small mixing bowl, add peanut butter, scotch bonnet pepper sauce, coconut aminos, Simple Homemade Date Syrup, and water. Stir well. The sauce should be smooth and creamy, like a thick dressing. Taste it and adjust seasonings, if needed. 
  9. Pour the sauce over the greens and stir well to combine. Turn off the heat, plate, and enjoy!
