This dish it's what I consider comfort food and the ultimate combination! I can easily eat bowls and bowls of polenta with collard greens and never get sick of it. And I'm sure you'll love it too! Take a look:

For Collard Greens
1 bunch collard greens (wash and dry leaves, cut into thinly ribbons)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and black pepper

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium/high heat. Add the garlic and sauté for about a minute. Add the collard greens and sauté for another 2 or 3 minutes until the collard greens wilts a little. Season with salt and pepper. Serve over hot polenta. Enjoy!

For Polenta
1 cup fine cornmeal

Add the minced garlic and sauté until golden in color. Add the cornmeal and water mixture into the pot. Reduce heat to medium/low. Keep whisking until it thickens. Season with salt.
