Collards with Neck Bones

Posted Feb 04 2013 9:56am

Collards with neck bones is a classic southern Soul Food dish, and maybe healthier than you think. The collards are highly nutritious, high in iron, vitamin K, folate, Omega 3′s, and other great stuff. The pork neckbones are tasty, loaded with nutrients, and pretty lean – although, the saturated fat they contain has been widely and wrongly vilified .

The most important criteria with healthy food is enjoyment. If it’s enjoyable, it’s sustainable. Here’s a great-tasting dish that’s crazy great for you!

This is simple to make. Brown the neckbones in a pot, adding onions, garlic, bay leaves, mustard seed, cumin seed, salt and pepper. Wash, cut up, and add the collards. Cook over low heat – preferably over a diffuser – for several hours. Add some chili powder, cayenne, molasses and vinegar to taste. Serve with rice or cornbread. Enjoy!
