Diabetes Recipe - Collard Greens
1 large bunch of collard greens (64 oz. cut and washed)
3 cup low-sodium chicken broth or homemade chicken stock without meat
2 medium onions, chopped
3 whole garlic cloves, crushed
1 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 tsp. black pepper

Exchanges: 2 vegetables

1. Wash and cut greens.

2. Mix greens in large stock pot together with the remaining ingredients.

3. Cook until tender. Allow flavors to blend by preparing the dish early in the day. The longer it blends the better it tastes!

This recipe looks like it could be good... I just need to figure out what collard greens are first. :)

Ghetto Spinach.

They're from the same species as cabbage and broccoli, but they share a lit of similar genetics with kale and spring greens.

They have a very strong, earthy/minerally taste to them. Some people like them, for me they're definitely something I just choke down for the health benefits and so I don't waste food if someone else cooked.

Ohhh, I think I know what you are talking about. This is the type of green that I sometimes find in a salad and try to avoid because I don't like it! Maybe I can substitute spinach for collard greens. :)

I've never heard of collard greens being done any other way than to boil or steam them. Collard greens in a salad is unheard of for me.

Oh, maybe I don't know what they are afterall... I guess I do have a chance of liking them!

I finally took some time to look up photos of collard greens and now I know I've never tried them, but I can tell the resemblence to cabbage.

I found a cooked version and an un-cooked version of collard greens.
