Vegetarian collard greens

As the new year rolls in, I decided to make some veggie collards. They taste even BETTER than collards I've had years ago with meat in them.

Ingredients used
1 bag of collards
2 non-chicken bouillon cubes
2 and 1/2 cups water
1 small onion (chopped)
1 garlic clove (minced)
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
Dash of liquid smoke
Dash of sugar
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tomato (chopped)
Salt and pepper to taste

Prepare broth in saucepan by combining water and bouillon cubes. Boil water until cubes have dissolved.

Melt butter with olive oil in separate pot. Add onions, garlic, and red pepper flakes.
After about two minutes, add collards and stir. Allow to cook for 2 minutes. Then add broth and add remaining seasonings. Cover and simmer for about 40 minutes or until greens are at the preferred softness.
