Ingredients

  • 1 turkey wing (8 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup onion
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 pound collard greens
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 

Preparation

  1. In a large pot, bring 2 quarts of water to a boil. Add turkey wing. Reduce heat and cook for about 1 hour. Set aside.
  2. Chop onion, garlic and collard greens.
  3. In another large pot, heat oil and butter on medium heat. Add onion and sauté for 2 minutes or until tender.
  4. Add garlic and red pepper flakes, and cook 1 minute.
  5. Add collard greens and cook 1 minute.
  6. Add enough turkey stock to cover greens (about 4 cups). Add salt and bring to a simmer.
  7. Cook until greens are tender, about 40 to 50 minutes.
  8. Debone the turkey wing and add meat to the cooked greens before serving.

Helpful hints

  • Most greens get a bad rap for being high in potassium when actually it is the portion consumed that makes the difference. Many people eat more than 1/2 cup. Stay within the suggested portion to keep potassium down.
  • To include turkey meat as an entrée, cook several turkey wings or legs. Remove and discard skin from the cooked turkey and add the meat to the collard greens if desired.
