Kenyan Braised Collard Greens (Sukuma Wiki)

Wild Oats Organic products at Walmart



Wild-Oats-Spices
Wild Oats' Olive Oil, Cinnamon Powder and Garlic Powder





Walmart is teaming up with Wild Oats to bring organic products and produce to the masses at an affordable price.  My cat Ginger broke off a few of my collard greens so I decided to make a meal using organic produce from my garden and organic products from Wild Oats.

Kenyan Braised Collard Greens (Sukuma Wiki)

I got the recipe from skinnytaste.com and I wanted to do something different from how I usually cook collard greens. The recipe has a lot of spices I normally don't put in my dishes, like coriander, cinnamon, ground ginger and turmeric. Wild Oats sent me their garlic powder, cumin, cinnamon, and olive oil to try out, however, the recipe needed more spices than the ones they gave me. I had to run over to Walmart to buy the rest. I wanted this meal to be completely organic with the collards and tomatoes from my garden, to the oil and spices from the Wild Oats company.  There were only 3 items that were not organic, the onion, the chopped garlic and coriander spice. The coriander was hard to find where I live, so I had to borrow it from my mom and it was old. Oh well, the dish was almost completely organic.

Results


The dish was a thumbs up with the husband, in fact, he ate some of it while he watched the World Cup games.  When I got home he told me it had a different taste to it and it was really good.  This was excellent news because it is easy to make, nutritious and very frugal.  The fresh spices except the coriander really made the meal unique and tasty.  So remember, if you have always wanted to buy organic products but found them too expensive, check out the Wild Oats line at Walmart and you won't be disappointed.
