So, we’re all trying to eat more vegetables. Ever try collard greens? They’re another nutritional knock-out!
In Georgia, where my sister-in-law lives, collards are eaten on New Year’s Day for financial prosperity! She shared this easy, healthy, and really delicious recipe with me.
Collards are available year-round but are tastier and more nutritious in the cold months, after the first frost.
A 1/2 cup cooked collard greens contain approximately 33 calories, 2.7 g protein, 0.7g fat, 6 g carbohydrates, 4 g fiber. Collards contain substantial amounts of vitamin K, are rich sources of vitamin A, vitamin C, and manganese, and are moderate sources of calcium and vitamin B6.
