Braised Collard Greens with Bacon: Low FODMAP, Onion-Free and Garlic-Free



MAKES: 4 servings

PREP TIME: 10 minutes

COOKING TIME: 20 minutes


- 1 tablespoon garlic-infused olive oil

- 1 slice of bacon cut into small squares

- 10 chopped garlic “Asian” chives (use only bottom halves). You may substitute with regular chives

- 1/2 lb collard greens

- 1 cup of garlic and onion free chicken broth (I mix 1 cup of water with 1 packet of Savory Choice Chicken Broth Concentrate)

- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

- 1 dash of hot pepper flakes (optional)


1 / Prepare the collard greens for cooking: wash and dry greens; cut out center ribs; cut into 1” wide strips; roughly chop the strips into bite sized pieces.

2/ In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium-low heat.

3/ Add bacon, sauté until it begins to crisp up, about 2 minutes.

4/ Reduce heat to low. Add chives and cook just until bacon is crisp (2-3 minutes).

5/ Add collard greens, sauté while stirring constantly, until the greens begin to wilt (3-4 minutes)

6/ Add broth, black pepper, and red pepper flakes.

7/ Cover the pot and allow to simmer on low heat for 20 minutes or until leaves are tender, but not mushy.
