Heart Smart Collard Greens

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by atlfitgirl

This is an adaptation of a recipe for collards that I found on the back of a package of Nature's Greens... I didn't have a smoked turkey wing/ham hock/ or bacon on hand, so this recipe really fit the bill that day! I really like this recipe since it really lets the flavor of the greens shine... they aren't cooked to death and are not overly sweet... which is how we like them. Even though these greens do not have that smokey flavor most of us are used to when eating collards, these are really tasty... and good for your heart!!!

Thanks for posting this. I love that recipe on the back of the package, but haven't been able to find it lately. Such a great collards recipe!
