Sauteed Collard Greens with Bacon Recipe

Sauteed Collard Greens with Bacon

My dad lived in Brazil for many years, and collard greens known as couve are a popular side dish there. I absolutely love them prepared this way, if you are a vegetarian, you can leave the bacon out. Still delicious!

It’s a good idea to include collard greens in your diet on a regular basis because of their ability to lower cholesterol and their cancer-preventive properties. Personally, I just eat them because I like them, so having the added health benefits is a bonus.
