Collards in place of spinach?

daislander | Mar 12, 2014 07:29 PM

After reading a recent 'minestrone' thread I feel the urge to make soup tonight. At my local shop they have collards in. I am on the west coast of canada and have only seen collards in the store a few times but a lot more in the last 2 yrs. I have never eaten them or cooked with them. I like to put a spinach or chard in my soup can I use collards? I think you have to cook them a lot longer? so maybe stew them for 30mins in broth before adding first veggies so will cook about a hour total? Or will the flavour be overpowering or unsuitable? Just eat them plain as Ive seen on tv shows?
