6-8 cups
6 slices of reduced sodium turkey bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 onion, halved and sliced thin
1/2 teaspoon of salt
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes with no salt added

1 lb. collards greens, stemmed and chopped

  3. Add tomatoes and their juice. Stir in broth and bring to boil. Add greens, cover, and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer until greens are tender about 10 minutes.
