Collard Greens

November 13, 2010

Collard greens…..another thing I got in my Bountiful Basket that I had never purchased. So I found this great recipe online and I really liked them!! I think they taste like cabbage, yummy. And if I had any relatives from the South I am sure they would have been proud of my cooking method.


1 tbs olive oil
4 slices bacon

1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
3 cups chicken broth
1 pinch red pepper flakes
1 pound fresh collard greens, cut into 2 inch pieces
1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add bacon, and cook until crisp. Remove bacon from pan, crumble and return to the pan. Add onion, and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, and cook until just fragrant. Add collard greens, and fry until they start to wilt.

2. Pour in chicken broth, and season with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 45 minutes, or until greens are tender.
