 Cheese:  saute the garlic in the spiced butter for a few minutes. Add the
 cardamon, salt and pepper.  Remove from the burner and allow to cool.
 Stir this mixture into the cheese.
 Greens:  cook the collard greens covered in a 4 quart saucepan along with
 about 1/2 cup water.  Add the cayenne, black pepper, garlic, spiced
 butter and chopped onion.  Cook covered until the greens collapse.  All
 the greens to cool a bit and salt to taste.
 To serve:  Drain the greens a bit and place on a platter or on Injera
 bread (recipe included in this set). Spoon the cheese over the greens and
 serve.  Alternate: mix the greens and cheese together before placing on
 the platter or bread.  Either way is delicious.
