Collard and Leeks

Farm Fresh To You is the name of our weekly local organic box. They have a newsletter they include with each box, telling us what's new on the farm. It's a deliciously old school way to blog (pun intended), and always includes at least a couple recipes. One was for collard & leeks (guess what was in the box that week). The collard greens are blanched and the leeks are pan fried, then combined at the very end with the veggie stock. The result is a rich flavor and smooth texture.
Naturally I left out the pancetta, but it didn't seem like anything was lacking. This was a phenomenal recipe and I will definitely be making it again.
