1/2 a large red onion, peeled and coarsely chopped
4 Tablespoons butter
1 Tablespoon coarsely chopped garlic
1 sprig of fresh tarragon
1 dried cayenne pepper, cut in half
4-6 stalks celery, sliced
1 bunch collard greens (center ribs removed, leaves sliced in 1 inch widths)
2 Tablespoons wheat free soy sauce
2 Tablespoons sherry
1 Tablespoon honey
1 red grapefruit, peeled and divided into sections, white membranes removed
freshly ground pepper
freshly ground salt
Fry the chopped red onion in the butter, in a non-stick skillet set over medium heat, for 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until the onion is browned – it will smell really great! Add the garlic, celery, cayenne pepper and tarragon branch and stir fry for a minute. Add the collard greens and stir fry as they wilt, another couple of minutes. Add the soy sauce, sherry and honey and stir fry as this cooks in to the greens, another 5-7 minutes. Add the grapefruit sections and stir-fry as the grapefruit sections start to fall apart and the greens cook some more – another 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
