This is a vegetarian recipe I've come up with, simply because I usually don't have the salt pork or hamhock traditionally included on hand. It's still got plenty of flavor!

I'm the kind of girl whose greens experience was just spinach, but now that I'm living in the Deep South other types of greens like collard, turnip and mustard are very common. Love the "hammy/bacony" recipes, but love this veggie option to help me get my dark greens w/o the fat. Can use salsa, canned tomatoes (regular or italian style) or Rotels for a hotter variation. Enjoy!

Awesome for sure! I used the tomato instead of salsa. Very very good!
