  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic minced
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 bag collard greens rinsed and chopped
  • 6 strips bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • salt and pepper


  • Heat a large stock pot over medium heat.  Add the olive oil, garlic and onion.  Cook until the onion is translucent, about 8 minutes.  Add the collard greens and cook, stirring constantly, until they are wilted, about 5 minutes.  Add the rest of the ingredients.
  • Lower the heat to a simmer and cook covered for about 2 hours or until the collards are soft.  Adjust seasonings as the cooking continues.


You can add more or use less vinegar than what is called for if you need to.
