Steamed or braised collard greens with garlic and a sprinkle of fresh lemon are naturally gluten-free. A relative of the cabbage and broccoli family, they are low carb and rich in fiber and many valuable nutrients, such as vitamins A, C and K, plus several of the B vitamins. They also have a variety of minerals, such as potassium, phosphorus and calcium, to name a few.
These collards can be served as a side for pork loin chops or chicken pieces for a paleo dinner, with a baked sweet potato as another side. I like to accompany them sometimes with Cajun rice or blackeyed peas to complement their texture and flavor for a vegetarian dinner. In the photo above they are shown with Shredded Barbecue Chicken.
