Storm's Raw Vegan Collards Recipe

Here is a great recipe for anyone looking to get more greens into your life.  This is a raw vegan spin on a classic southern dish: Collard Greens.  Collard Greens are such an amazing source of vitamins and minerals!  With the traditional Collard recipe, however, most of the vitamins and minerals are boiled out, in a bath of ham hock juice, no less!  Storm invented this recipe this summer, and it is better than the soul food version, and full of heart healthy polyunsaturated fats.

Raw Vegan Collards


1 Head of Collard Greens



1/4 Cup Extra Virgin Cold-Pressed Olive Oil



1 Tomato



1/2 an Onion



1 1/2 Cups Really Raw Cashews



1 tsp Celtic Sea Salt




Cut the stems from all your Collards.


Coarsely chop into large pieces.


The pieces should be about this size.


Add Olive Oil


Massage the Olive Oil into the Collards well.


Powder Really Raw Cashews in your Vita Mix, Coffee Grinder, or other High Speed Blender.


Add Cashew Powder to Collard Greens.


Mix thoroughly.


Transfer to a glass dish.


Add sliced Tomato, Onion, and Salt.


Put the dish in the sun for at least 1 hour.


Serve, and enjoy!


You can try adding different ingredients to this recipe, such as leeks, marinated mushroom, or even other types of greens like kale or bok choy!

Here is a video of the entire process:

    Hi I understood that cut tomato left in the sun would make the food bad/toxic?

  4. Elena says:

    Very very cool! Thank you so much for sharing and using the sun…. i would have never thought of that!

  7. Colleen says:

    Jinjee when I process my raw cashews I don’t get a “powder” I get a pastey results. Any suggestions?

  8. Cathy says:

    YUMMO!!! I made them this past Saturday…it was raining out so I decided to eat them without putting them in the sun…I scarfed down a huge bowl immediately…absolutely delicious! Thanks so much! :-)

    • jinjee says:

      Good to know it works without the sun! Did you let them sit for a while?

      • Felecia Weber says:

        Hi Jinjee! :-)

        Nope, it looked so good in the bowl, I just dove right in! :-) In fact, I made a huge bowl of it and have stored it in the refrigerator and I’ve had it as my “main meal” of the day for the past 3 days! :-) I think that I will add sun-dried tomatoes the next time I make it. They seem to mimic bacon, (yuck!), but perhaps that will entice my hubby to try more than just a nibble of it! :-)

        Blessings to you and your beautiful family…I have been so very much inspired by your offerings! :-)

    P.S. I added a banana pepper (not hot), an orange bell pepper and a bit of fresh kale too! :-)
