Kale, collard, and mustard greens cooked southern style with bacon. Simmered in chicken broth, with onions, garlic, and peppers!

A few years ago I uploaded my recipe for Southern Collard Greens. Since then the recipe has been tried, and loved by so many of my viewers. Since you all loved the recipe so much I decided to come back with another southern greens recipe, but this time the greens are mixed.

I honestly love all greens, but the greens used for this recipe was kale, collards, and mustard greens. I seasoned the greens with European Style Bacon, and I must say that I absolutely loved it. I usually use bacon ends, ham hocks, or smoked pork neck bones. However, my local butcher talked me into trying the European style bacon, and I’m glad that he did. The bacon is a lot smokier than regular bacon, and it had a lot less fat. The outcome was amazing…. I think I am now in love with European style bacon y’all!

Other than using bacon to flavor my southern mixed greens I also use my usual ingredients such as chicken broth, garlic, onions, bell peppers, and red pepper flakes.

So we talked about the greens, the bacon, and even what I use to season the greens. Now let’s talk about the turnips. I used about 3-4 turnips for this huge pot of greens. Before throwing them into the pot I made sure to wash them thoroughly. After washing the turnips, I peeled them, then I cut them into small squares.

Cornbread goes well with Collard Greens. Some folks like to dip their cornbread in the “potlikker” or liquid and eat it that way.
Leftover potlikker and even some of the greens can be used to make Potlikker Soup.

This is my favorite family recipe for collard greens made WITHOUT chicken broth and smoked meat. It’s healthier but don’t expect to have to sacrifice taste! You won’t even miss the meat.

Pass the hot sauce! It’s on and poppin.

This vegetarian southern collard greens recipe is family approved which isn’t easy to do in my deep south, tell it like it is, family. Try bringing a pot of collard greens to dinner that doesn’t have a slab of smoked meat in the pot and there are bound to be some issues and major side eye. Not with this recipe though!

Smokey, slightly salty, slightly vinegary goodness!

These collard greens are full of southern flavor! The key to a pot of guuuud, yes guuuuud, vegetarian southern collard greens, or any kind of collard greens for that matter, is to create a savory broth to slowly simmer the collards in. This recipe starts with a broth made with rich vegetable broth for maximum flavor, fresh garlic and onions, smoked applewood salt for that smokey, bacon taste and red pepper flakes for a kick. The collard greens just soak up all that yumminess.

Yum!! Here is the flavorful, smokey broth we’ll be simmering our collard greens in!

I love this recipe because it’s so easy and sometimes I just want a meat-free version of soulful dishes like collard greens.

65+ Delicious Vegetable Sides to Make Any Weeknight Dinner Healthier

If you're trying to get your family to eat a little healthier, one of the best (and easiest) things you can do is to start serving them more vegetables. Not only are vegetable packed with nutrients, but when they're tucked into these side dish recipes, they're also absolutely delicious. And when paired with a piece of lean protein (say chicken recipes or seafood recipes), then you've got a perfect meal the whole family will love.

Fortunately, the majority of these plates are simple to put together. With dishes like salt-and-pepper charred green beans, corn cobettes with basil butter, roasted Brussels sprouts, or a spicy lemon cauliflower, you can whip these up while the chicken bakes or the meat roasts.

Of course, the vegetable side dishes don't stop there. Some of the other crowd-pleasers on this list include fall favorites like roasted butternut squash with cider vinaigrette, marinated mushroom-and-charred broccolini salad, and creamy cauliflower gratin. If you want to get extra healthy you can try skipping meat altogether one or two nights a week, and either make several of these sides, or incorporate them with vegetarian recipes for a full meat-free meal. No matter what kind of side dish you're in the mood for, you'll find it here. These recipes are so good, even the kids will be piling their plates with veggies. In fact, you might even have to remind your kids to save room for dessert&mdashand wouldn't that be a surprise!

31 Satisfying Salad Recipes

Keep this formula on hand, and you'll never be far from a delicious veggie dish, no matter the season. Just follow this basic blueprint: greens (here, red leaf) + seasonal vegetable and/or fruit (corn and peaches) + cheese/something creamy (avocado and feta) and/or egg + nuts (walnuts). Throughout the year, it's an easy way to elevate a simple green salad to one that transcends the genre.

You'll win over converts with this reinvention of the ubiquitous healthy salad. It starts with red quinoa, which provides a nutty crunch then there are diagonally sliced carrot coins (they're a bit larger than circles and help make the plate more eye-catching) and baby-kale leaves, which are more tender than the regular-size. You toss the leaves in a pomegranate-molasses-sherry vinegar dressing, for a bit of sweetness and finally, sprinkle on hefty doses of crumbled goat cheese and toasted, sliced almonds.

Tender, protein-packed edamame can boost any salad, but the young soybeans are the stars of this dish. There are also avocado pieces speckled with poppy seeds and matchstick carrots (purple, yellow and orange varieties), so there's a nice balance of textures. This recipe suggests a citrus or creamy dressing, such as this spicy, lemony one or this miso-based one.

A salad of arugula, watercress and mizuna is a spicy foil for fresh cherries, which tame the bracing flavors. Thin slices of prosciutto and handfuls of crumbled goat cheese add a silky, rich taste.

We don't often eat panzanella in cooler weather, as the bread-and-veggie dish usually brims with ripe summer tomatoes. Yet this recipe convinces us that the entrée salad can make a winning meal even when tomatoes aren't at their peak. It uses lacinato kale, a dark, purplish variety that grows through the winter in all but the chilliest climates. With walnuts for crunch, mandarins for sweet juiciness and portobello mushroom "steaks," this meal will have you wondering what other summer recipes you can winterize (corn on the cob in February, anyone?).

Kale isn't the only vegetable that can use a good massaging. In this play on coleslaw, you'll see how thinly sliced Brussels sprouts, beets, carrots and Napa cabbage also benefit from the technique. The sprouts can be fantastic raw—they just need to be broken down somewhat, by the action of your hands working oil, lemon juice and salt into them. A citrus-tahini dressing completes the salad, which tastes even better after sitting in the refrigerator for a few days.

The tart flavors in a salad of baby arugula, grapefruit and fennel are beautifully balanced by an avocado oil vinaigrette and crunchy black pepper croutons baked with the same ultrahealthy oil. The croutons can be made up to two days in advance and stored in an airtight container.

Green Salad Serving Suggestions

This is my favorite green salad to serve with heavier holiday/comfort foods. Consider pairing this salad with lasagna, baked ziti and stuffed acorn squash.

Serve this salad with a creamy soup to round out a light meal. It would go especially well with my creamy pumpkin soup, best butternut soup, and creamy roasted cauliflower soup.

Final Word

I would love to be able to grow my own fruit and vegetables, but my yard is very small and gets almost no sun, and the soil is less than rich. I try to go to a local farmer’s market at least once a week, but when I can’t, I hit up my friends who have gardens. They are usually more than willing to give me what I want, and they never charge me. The more I explore these tips and tricks, the easier it is for me to get my five servings and keep up with my savings.
