Number of Servings: 6


    2 large stalks collard greens
    1 jalapeno pepper
    1 cup chicken, turkey or vegetable broth
    1 tbl olive oil (Optional)


Chop or tear collards into bite size pieces. Chop jalapeno pepper into very small pieces, including the seeds. Combine vegetables into a 2 quart slow cooker. (This amount of greens should almost pop the top of the slow-cooker lid, but don't worry, they will reduce). Pour broth over vegetables and simmer over night on low.

Please allow up to 10 hours, in the slow cooker on a low setting.
Makes six 1/2 -cup servings.

  • I fit 2 bunches of greens into my crock pot by blanching them, and then using half the water in the crock. Also, I used up the bacon slices in my fridge and a large onion as well as garlic. Yummy. Especially if use beet greens, can finish pot liquor with a dash of cider or balsalmic vinegar. - 12/27/08
