Let’s get started
Wait…Please, Wash your Hands!
Now, let’s make something Pretty and Delicious!
Start by washing your Greens. Loosely fill a large bowl with Greens and then fill the bowl with cold water, let sit for 2-3 minutes. Vigorously move the Greens around the bowl before removing from them from the bowl. This should help remove any remaining dirt from your Greens. Cut your green into large strips, remove stems. Once your
Greens are cut place them in a large pot. Add in the onion, garlic, Apple cider vinegar, Kosher salt and Vegetable stock. Place over high heat and bring to a boil. Once the pot boils, cover and reduce to a lower heat. Let simmer for 35-40 minutes. Stir occasionally.
Now, let’s start on our Crispy Turkey Bacon. Cut your bacon into thin strips. Place a large skillet over medium heat and add in oil. Once the oil is hot add in Turkey bacon. Cook until golden brown and crispy. Once done remove from heat and place on paper towel to drain any extra oil.
Once your Simple & Easy Collard Greens are tender and done, remove from stove and taste. Use a slotted spoon to plate the Collard Greens. It is ideal to serve your greens with a little of it’s juice. Garnish with your Crispy Turkey Bacon. Now all you have to do is Enjoy!
