Cookin’ Greens with Bacon and Red Onion

kale and bacon


2 slices bacon, cut crosswise into ½ inch strips
(Can use Turkey Bacon)

1 medium garlic clove, minced (about 1 teaspoon)
½ teaspoon minced fresh thyme leaves

  3. Add thyme and Cookin’ Greens (from frozen) and sauté for 10-12 minutes.
  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Garnish with reserved bacon and serve immediately.
