Collard soup

Sunday, February 12, 2012

I made a batch of collard soup tonight. It was ok. Not great, but ok. It would have been improved if I'd put some tomatoes and cheese in it. I'm not going to hurry back to Walmart and get more of the 10 cans.

    I bought canned collard greens at Walmart recently but here in California they were 68 cents a can. When I warmed them up to eat they were pretty blah, until I added about a tsp of bacon grease and some pepper. Then pretty good. Not sure if I would do soup. Actually I might do a soup with cauliflower, sausage and some collard greens and cream, pepper etc.

Cheap canned greens

Saturday, February 11, 2012

I was at Walmart today to check some prices and found canned turnip greens, canned collard greens, and canned mustard greens for 10 cents a can! Don't know if they'll be any good, but I figured it was worth taking a chance on and got 2 of each.

I plan to use them to make my Cream of Whatever Is Handy Soup. I usually make it with frozen spinach or frozen broccoli, but I'm going to try it with the canned greens. Here's the general recipe:

2 cups chicken broth or other broth
8 oz frozen veggies (or I'll use a can of greens)
1/4 c heavy cream OR 2 oz grated cheddar (for broccoli) OR 1 oz grated Paremesan (for spinach)
Sometimes I add some chopped onion, or onion powder or garlic powder or whatever other spices or herbs sound good

Cook the veggies in the broth until done. Then puree it in a blender or with a stick blender. Add the cream or cheese and serve.

This makes a big bowlful - about 3 cups with the frozen veggies.
