COLLARD GREEN AND BLACK EYED PEAS RECIPE
1 tsp of olive oil
3 slices of nitrate free bacon (I used 40% less fat), chopped up
1 onion, finely diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 celery stalks, finely diced
2 15oz cans of black-eyed peas and the liquid they come in
2 cups of low sodium chicken broth
4 cups of collard, sliced into ribbons
2 sprigs of thyme
1 tsp of chopped rosemary
2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
Heat olive oil in a medium stockpot over a medium low heat and then add bacon. Allow to cook for about five minutes or until the bacon is browned.
Add in the onions and a pinch of salt, saute for about 3 minutes or until the onions begin to release some of their liquid before adding in the celery and garlic. Cook all the veggies for another five minutes or until they are fragrant and tender.
Add beans, broth, thyme, and rosemary to the pot. Turn the heat to high and bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Once simmering, stir in your greens. Cook for another 10 or fifteen minutes (depending on how tender you like your greens).
Stir in vinegar and season with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
