  • Iron skillet
  • Knife
  • Cutting board
  • Measuring spoons
  • Dry measuring cups



  • Heat a skillet on medium and add the olive oil.
  • Add the onions and cook until fragrant and caramelized.
  • While the onions are cooking, chop up the collard greens.
  • Add the collard greens to the onions and cook until the greens start to wilt.
  • Add the apple cider vinegar, curry powder, Organic Koops' Mustard, and honey and stir until thoroughly combined. Add in the water 1 tbsp at a time if it starts to stick to the pan.
  • Turn down the heat to medium-low and continue cooking.
  • Sprinkle in a pinch of the BurgerFit Smoked Salt.
  • Move the collard greens to one side of the pan and add your BurgerFit burgers to cook.


  • Replace collard greens with other hardy greens or a combination of greens such as swiss chard, kale, and spinach.
  • Olive oil with any cooking fat that you prefer to cook with: coconut oil, avocado oil, rendered lard, tallow, etc. You could even cook a little bacon first and use the grease from it to cook the collard greens in! Yum!
  • Cook up some bacon with it for added deliciousness
