Healthy Collard Greens

steamed-collard-chardsTypically collard greens are cooked with ham hocks or bacon.  Here is a healthier, but still delicious recipe that makes a traditional recipe without the traditional unhealthy fat.  You can also make this with kale, swiss chard, mustard greens or spinach.

  • 1 bunch of collard greens
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • apple cider vinegar

Cook collard greens in lightly salted water until wilted (about 5-10 minutes).  Drain and pat dry.

Add grapeseed oil to medium-sized skillet to coat bottom.  Add garlic and heat until garlic sizzles.  Add red pepper and cook until garlic is golden brown and tender. Add greens and toss with hot oil for an additional 2 minutes.

Season with a splash of vinegar and salt and pepper to taste.  Enjoy!
