Collard greens are extremely nutritious. They are an excellent source of bone-building calcium. A cup of cooked collard greens contains 268 mg. of calcium. Besides calcium, they provide important minerals such as iron, copper, manganese, magnesium, selenium, and zinc. They contain very high levels of vitamin K, which plays an important role in bone health. Collards are also rich in vitamin A, vitamin C, and a good source of vitamin E. These are only a few of the many health benefits of collard greens.
Note from Margie: These are my favorite vegetables to use, but the recipe works with most vegetables
