As I've mentioned a few times since June, we've been getting our produce from our CSA, Early Morning Farm. We get this box filled with all sorts of fantastic veg, but once in a while we get something that totally throws us for a loop. I'm going to be honest, I don't think dandelion greens will ever make my shopping list. But collard greens, on the other hand, are not so bad. Nelsy and I had never had them before and found ourselves with a big o'll stack of the over sized greens.
All Recipes app I recommend it. (The "Dinner Spinner is a particularly nice feature.) It was there I found Kickin' Collard Greens by Ken Adams.
Kickin' Collard Greens (Ken Adams)
1 TBS olive oil
3 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 lb fresh collard greens cut into 2 inch pieces
Heat oil in a large pot over medium high heat. Add bacon and cook until crisp. Remove bacon from the pan, crumble and return to pan. Add onion and cook until soft, about 5 min. Add garlic and cook 1 min more. Add collard greens and fry until they start to wilt. Pour in chicken broth and season with salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 45 min or until greens are tender.
Ya'll enjoy now, ya hear?
