Sweet Collard Greens with Ham and Beans
Glazed Ham + Lima Beans with Maple-Mustard Collard Greens
For this recipe, I steamed the collards for about 10 minutes in a liquid composed of 1 cup vegetable broth, 1 tbsp maple syrup, 1/2 tsp dried mustard and red pepper flakes.
I cooked the ham (pre-chopped, frozen and thawed leftover from Easter) and beans (soaked and cooked over the weekend) in a separate skillet and then de-glazed with an ounce of white wine (you could skip that step). The steaming “broth” on the bottom leftover from the collards was sweet and light – yum! There are a few toasted almonds on top!
You could use bacon in this recipe, or honey ham from the deli. And canned or frozen lima beans!
