Collard Green Goodness

The first time I tried this version of the recipe, I ate it for all three meals. LOVED it! If you have leftovers, toss in a can of tomatoes, a can of white beans, and whatever veggies you have in the fridge, and make yourself a tasty soup.

Cook Time:


  • 1 bunch(es) collard greens
  • 4 slice(s) turkey bacon
  • 1 tablespoon(s) extra virgin coconut oil or olive oil
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 tablespoon(s) coconut vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon(s) maple syrup
  • 1/4 tablespoon(s) hot red pepper flakes
  • 8 ounce(s) low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon(s) minced garlic


  1. • Remove stems and center ribs from greens and discard.
  2. • Cut the greens into bite-sized strips.
  3. • Cook up your bacon; I like mine crispy. Chop it up and set it aside.
  4. • Chop up your onion and put it in the pan with the oil for about 2 minutes until soft.
  5. • Add all the rest of your ingredients except the bacon and let it cook for half an hour or until the liquid is pretty much gone.
  6. • Add your bacon and dish up.
