Correction, have you ever had curry coconut braised collard greens in coconut milk, curry powder, and more? The flavor profile is so so so good + intense and down right amazing y’all! The greens break down and get tender and absorb all the goodness they’ve been simmering away in.

A Little About Palmetto Gardens:

As previously mentioned, I’m so excited to do a collaboration with a great brand on this post. Palmetto Gardens is a South Carolina based brand that originated as a family farm dedicated to sustainable agriculture that grows and packages greens such as collard, mustard, kale, and turnip.

Their farm fresh greens come triple-washed and ready to go which is so convenient when wanting to make a recipe in a pinch! Also, their greens are regionally grown (Southeast and East Coast) with farms in South Carolina, Florida, and Pennsylvania. I love that these greens are so versatile and easy to use.

If I’m being completely honest with you, incorporating dark leafy greens into my diet is super important. They’re packed with vitamins, minerals, and fiber. And collard greens alone have so many benefits. As a home cook who frequently makes all sorts of comfort/indulgent goods, it’s of utmost importance to get my greens in as much as possible. Whether it’s adding some kale to my smoothies in the morning or developing new ways to use collard greens, I’m doing it. Additionally, the Palmetto Gardens brand is sold exclusively in one of my absolute favorite grocery stores ever…Publix!

They recently sent me on a sponsored shopping trip to treat myself with all the Publix goodies, too! You can find Publix supermarkets operating throughout the Southeastern United States with stores in: Alabama, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia. I had such good time picking up all of my Publix favorites (hello, BOGO’s!) and also got to see the new Palmetto Gardens packaging that’s in stores now!
