Smokey Greens with Canadian Bacon

Serves 6


  • 1 1/2 lbs greens of your choice rinsed, de-ribbed and roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp unsalted organic butter
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 oz Canadian bacon or natural smoked ham, diced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • Lots of fresh cracked pepper


Sauté the onion and garlic in a large skillet over medium high heat until softened, about 5 minutes. Add bacon or ham and cook until it begins to brown along the edges, about 3 minutes. Stir in greens, salt, and pepper.
Stir the greens over high heat for a couple minutes until beginning to wilt, then add broth and bring to a boil. Cover pan and reduce heat to extra low.
5 minutes later stir greens – they may be done depending on their freshness , but if they aren’t, return the lid and continue cooking until desired doneness. Season with salt and lots of pepper! Serve over brown rice if desired.
