This recipe will make 4 decent sized servings.

We usually make this recipe in our microwave oven in a covered baking dish. It is also quicker to prepare if you use frozen collards and spinach.

If you use fresh collard greens and spinach, wash and clean thoroughly and chip in a food processor, and place in the baking dish.  If you are using frozen collard greens and spinach, place the contents of the packages in the baking dish.

Peel and dice the onions, and place them on top of the greens in the baking dish, cover, and cook on "high" in the microwave oven until the onions become semi translucent, mix well, and continue cooking with occasional mixing until the contents are hot and the greens are tender.

Serve with lemon wedges, if desired, and enjoy!

We usually make larger batches and save the leftovers so we can add some to our green smoothies in the morning.
