Collard Greens
  • 2 pounds fresh collard greens

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

  • 1 medium onion, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

  • 1 14-ounce can reduced-sodium chicken broth

  • 1 smoked turkey neck bone or smoked turkey drumstick bone*

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

  1. Wash collard greens thoroughly. Cut off stems and discard. Coarsely chop collard greens and set aside. (You should have about 9 cups packed.) In a 4-quart Dutch oven, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook about 5 minutes or until tender.

  2. Add collard greens, chicken broth, smoked turkey bone, and pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 1 hour or until collard greens are tender. Remove smoked turkey bone and drain off any excess liquid. Serve warm with a slotted spoon. Makes 6 (1/3-cup) servings.

  3. *Test Kichen Tip:If using a turkey drumstick, remove meat and reserve for another use; use only the bone for this recipe.
