Season’s Eatings!

By on November 3, 2014

The holidays are known for holiday shopping, holiday traditions, and chief among them, good holiday feasts. If you are living with diabetes, eating meals with family and friends can be a challenge. But here are several recipes from the good people at Diabetes Self Management. 

Seasoned collard greens

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 35 minutes 

2 teaspoons sodium-free powdered instant chicken bouillon
2 cups water
2 packages (9 ounces each) frozen collard greens, thawed
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 clove (or 1 teaspoon) minced garlic
2 slices uncooked turkey bacon, chopped
2 teaspoons packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 pinch red pepper flakes (more or less to taste)
Cider vinegar

Stir together bouillon and water in a pan; bring to a boil over high heat. Add greens, onion, garlic, bacon, brown sugar, and salt. Reduce heat to low-medium and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes; stir occasionally. Drain the greens well and season each serving with cider vinegar to taste (give it a try; it actually enhances the flavor of the greens). If the greens are not drained, cornbread can be used to soak up the liquid, or “pot liquor.”
