This makes a really good side dish all around. Classic southern way to cook Collard Greens, but without the high fat! Serves 4.
1 bunch collard greens
4 slices extra lean smoked turkey bacon, chopped
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp minced garlic
2/3 cup water
Put the water in the pot and add the turkey bacon, garlic and red pepper flakes. Bring to a boil and turn to medium heat, simmer about 15 minutes or so. Add a little more water if it boils down too low.
Wash greens and tear the leaves off the white stem. Tear or chop into bite size pieces. Add these to the pot, stir to make sure all the greens are covered. Cover pot and let simmer for another 15 minutes, or till greens are tender and liquid is reduced.
I just love it. 1 point per cup. My husband eats it with ranch dressing, but that's just him.
