Unlike a quick blanching, steaming or sauté, this dish ash you simmering the greens for quite a while in a generous amount of vegetable stock. Perhaps you have heard the term, “pot liquor” and wondered what that was.

Sometimes it is spelled “pot likker” or “potlikker” but it is all the same thing. It refers to the liquid in which your dish is cooked and it is flavorful and plentiful and looked upon as a part of the dish in its own right. You do not throw it down the sink!

Loving Pot Liquor

Pot liquor is not only flavorful, it often contains plenty of nutrition as well. It is almost like a yummy and healthy self-creating sauce.

We love these Low FODMAP Simmered Collard Greens with roasted chicken and meatloaf, in particular – both recipes are Certified Low FODMAP by Monash University.
