  1. In a large pot, combine onions and garlic in 2 cups of the water or stock. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the collards or kale by rinsing well and removing the coarse stems. Stack the leaves and slice them thinly crosswise and then slice through the stack lengthwise once or twice. Add the greens, tomatoes and their juice, black-eyed peas, the additional cup of water, vinegar, brown sugar, thyme, allspice, and Tabasco to the pot. Simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. Stir in the rice and cook for 5 minutes more. Add salt to taste.
