Tips and Variations
Tips and Variations
  • For a vegetarian healthier version of this recipe, leave out the bacon and saute onions and garlic in 1 tablespoon vegetable oil.
  • Try Swiss chard in place of kale.
  • If you have leftovers, mix the cooked greens with cooked brown rice and eat as a salad or in a wrap. Cooked greens are also great mixed into scrambled eggs or served on pizza.
