Here is yet another winter vegetable that I’ve never thought of fondly…collard greens. In all seriousness, I felt the same way about collard greens as I did about kale. I had never tried it before our switch to real food, and I certainly didn’t have any plans to run out and buy any. However, once I started to understand the importance of eating locally grown foods that are in season, my views changed. So I set out to find a way to make collard greens into a tasty dish that didn’t take all day long to cook (it only takes about 25 – 30 min).
This recipe is also a perfect example of flavoring your meal with meat rather than having meat as the main course. You could pair it with some baked sweet potatoes and whole-wheat biscuits to make one delicious, filling and healthy meal. I do want to preface this recipe though by saying that my children have been accepting of most of what I have posted so far, but as you can imagine this unfortunately is not one of them!
