Collards are a very healthy green, a bit on the bitter side they are a great addition to fried chicken or any other protein for that matter. You can leave out the meat and make these vegan, but I would suggest you add a bit of liquid smoke and use a good quality veg stock. I am lucky enough to live within walking distance from Cason’s fine meats, rain or shine they are smoking all kinds of critters! Walking down Denver you can smell it in the air, and their smoked turkey products could rival some smoked pork products I have had. —Alexandra V. Jones
