Collard Greens - It's Good for You!
40 mins (prep 10, cooking 30)

Collards are among the oldest members of the cabbage family! Vegetarians can skip the bacon and use smoke flavoring and use a veggie broth in place of the chicken broth. I find this is one green that you do have to cook a while. The flavor is between cabbage and kale. They are low in calories. A rich source of fiber, vitamin C and calcium, and protects you against cancer.
