1 bunch of collards, finely shredded

2 cups vegetable stock or I use Better Than Bouillion Vegan Chicken Flavor

3/4 cup scallions, chopped

1/8 tsp cayenne

1 tbsp vegan worcestershire sauce

1 tbsp fresh parsely, chopped

Melt Earth Balance in a large saucepan.  Saute onion and celery until tender.  Add garlic and cook a couple of minutes or until fragrant.  Add flour and stir constantly.  Cook for a few minutes or until the roux turns a golden color.  Stir in tomatoes, salt and pepper, paprika, thyme and bay leaves.  Gradually add stock while stirring. 

Add collards, black-eyed peas and vegan andouille.  Cook 15-20 minutes, stirring constantly.  Once sauce has thickened, add scallions, cayenne and vegan Worcestershire sauce.  Cook for 5 minutes.  Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of Earth Balance, fold in parsley and remove bay leaves.  Serve over hot rice.
