Collard Stir-Fry

Collard Stir-Fry

Christy Morgan, The Blissful Chef, shared her vegan collard stir-fry recipe in The China Study All-Star Collection by BenBella Books!

Christy says, “This vegan collard stir-fry recipe is my healthier, more vibrant version with a touch of orange.” Tip: A chiffonade is a fine slice or shred of leafy vegetables or herbs. To chiffonade, simply stack a few leaves, roll them into a cigar shape, and slice. Remember to remove any tough, woody stems that you want to exclude from your preparation.
