Braised Collard Greens and Shrimp

Holy COW! was this a tasty supper

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 large onion, chopped
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp paprika
2 dashes Worcester sauce
1 bunch collard greens, chopped
2 cups vegetable stock
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

In a large pot over medium heat, heat oil and butter. Saute the onions until slightly softened, about 2 minutes, then add the red pepper flakes, garlic and cook another minute. Add collard greens and cook another minute. Add the vegetable stock and spices, cover and bring to a simmer. Cook until greens are tender, about 30 minutes. I tossed in 5 frozen shrimp with about 10 minutes left. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
