Slow Cooker Collard Greens

A low-fat, lower-sodium twist on an old family favorite.

Minutes to Prepare: 15
Minutes to Cook: 360
Number of Servings: 12


6 ounces turkey meat (such as turkey necks)
2 pounds chopped collard greens
1/2 large onion, chopped (about 3/4 cup)
1 (14.5-ounce) can fat-free chicken broth
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt (optional)
1/2 cup water
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil

Seasonings to taste: garlic powder, onion powder, Mrs. Dash, black pepper, chili powder (my secret ingredient!), or crushed red pepper flakes


Place the turkey meat in the bottom of a slow cooker.

Next add the collards and onions.

Add the chicken broth and water, place the lid on the slow cooker and set the time (I set my slow cooker on high for 6 hours. Note: Cooking times may vary based on the type of cooker used.)

Once the collards have cooked down a little (approximately 45 minutes)– add the sugar, cider vinegar, olive oil, salt (optional) and remaining seasonings (to taste), then stir.
Cook until the collards have reached your desired texture.
