Collard green soup is a wonderful way to prepare these nutrition-rich winter greens.  Great Northern beans, chopped yellow onion, white wine, garlic, and fresh thyme give this soup incredible flavor. For a weeknight supper, serve with slices of crusty bread spread with goat cheese.

How to Make It

Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; sauté for 5 minutes or until onion is tender. Add wine, pepper, and salt. Reduce heat; simmer 5 minutes or until liquid almost evaporates. Add greens, thyme, and broth. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 8 minutes or until greens are tender. Add beans; simmer 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

Good flavors

This is very nice.  I used only a cup of broth so that it would be more like a braise than a soup.  Also used a teaspoon of bacon dripping instead of healthy olive oil--but a little bit doesn't hurt!  And I added some sun-dried tomatoes and just a dash of tomato paste.  Really good for a lunch with some crusty bread.

Tasty but alittle light for dinner

My husband and like this soup but at 139 cal. And 7.6g of protein it is a bit light for dinner. Be sure to have the bread and goat cheese to flesh it out. We had zucchini ove chips, cooking with it, yummy.

Yummy - I added the green pepper (1/2 c) with the onion and chopped tomato (1c) with the beans. Great additions!

This is a filling, hearty soup. I used dried thyme instead of fresh and added some chopped cooked chicken breast to my boyfriend's portion of soup. Simple to make and tasty. I served it alongside French bread spread with goat cheese. I will make this soup again.

Yummy - only change was that I added cherry tomatoes - which brightened the flavor and the color.
