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, this recipe is lightened up with a couple of slices of ham and just a touch of olive oil.

Serves 4

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon Garlic, minced

2 slices nitrate free ham

8 cups chopped, destemmed, collards

1 cup vegetable or chicken broth


Place a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the olive oil and the garlic. Sauté until the garlic is golden. Add the ham and cook for 2 minute, stirring often..


Add the collards and broth and cover with a lid for 4 minutes, until wilted. Remove the lid and stir. Reduce the heat to low and continue to cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until very tender. Enjoy!
