I never knew I like collard greens until I made the Paleo On The Go's recipe. Turns out I LOVE them. The slightly bitter greens cook down into a tender bite of nutrient-dense goodness. The bacon gives it depth of flavor and the vinegar brightens it up. Make these!
2 bunches of collard greens, washed, de-stemmed and roughly chopped
1/2 lb bacon, cubed
1 Tbs balsamic vinegar
1 onion, diced
2 cups chicken stock
sea salt to taste
I like to use a stock pot for this as the greens start out pretty big but cook down a lot. Heat the pot on the stove top. Add bacon. Sauté until fat is rendered. Add onions to pot and sauté until tender. Add collard greens, vinegar, and a dash of sea salt. Add chicken stock and cover. Cook until tender, approximately 45 minutes. Check on it regularly to make sure you have enough liquid. Taste for seasoning. Add sea salt and/or vinegar as needed.
