Tender Spring Greens

Regardless of your eating plan, there’s always a place for ample servings of dark, leafy greens. This nutritious dish is filled with fiber, folate, carotenoids, iron, calcium, and vitamins K and C. While most collard greens recipes involve bacon and lots of fat (which is not necessarily a bad thing), this recipe is lightened up with a couple of slices of ham and just a touch of olive oil.

Servings: 4


  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 slices ham, diced
  • 8 cups chopped, destemmed collards

  1. Place a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the olive oil and the garlic.
  2. Sauté until the garlic is golden. Add the ham and cook for 2 minute, stirring often.
  3. Add the collards and broth and cover with a lid for 4 minutes, until wilted.
  4. Remove the lid and stir.
  5. Reduce the heat to low and continue to cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until very tender. Enjoy!
