Country-style collard greens

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 50–55 minutes

1 tablespoon corn oil
1/2 cup chopped onion (about 1 small onion)
1 teaspoon (or 1 clove) minced garlic
1 pound collard greens, trimmed and chopped (about 2 large bunches)
2 cans (14.5 ounces each) fat-free, reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 teaspoon packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons liquid smoke flavoring
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Heat oil in a large pot. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until onion is tender, taking care not to burn the garlic. Add greens, chicken broth, brown sugar, liquid smoke flavoring, and red pepper flakes. Cover, bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium and simmer 30 minutes, or until greens are tender; stir periodically. Remove lid from pan and continue cooking until most of liquid evaporates (about 15–20 minutes more).

Yield: 2 cups
