Collard Greens W Tomato Hot Pepper & Garlic

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
6 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 medium onion, cut into 1/2-inch dice
1 jalapeño, halved lengthwise  (other types of hot pepper may be substituted)
4 medium tomatoes, chopped
2 pounds collard greens, stems discarded and leaves finely shredded
3 bay leaves
2 thyme sprigs
Salt and freshly ground pepper

In a large enameled, cast-iron casserole, heat the olive oil. Add the garlic, onion and hot pepper and cook over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, collards, bay leaves and thyme sprigs. Cover and cook over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until the collards are tender, about 20 minutes. Discard the hot pepper, bay leaves and thyme sprigs. Season the collards with salt and pepper and serve.

Serves 4-6.
