Collard Greens, Frozen Chopped

(Collard Greens, Frozen Chopped)  Frozen chopped collard green are an easy way to have this vegetable available for "quickie" meal preparation.  We usually purchase our frozen collard greens in 1-pound plastic bags, which we can store in the freezer for use anytime, such as in a vegetable smoothie, where we only use a partial bag.  By carefully opening the bag of frozen collard greens from on end, and removing the amount of collard greens we wish to use, we can then reseal the bag of still frozen greens and save the remainder in the freezer for another meal.  Frozen chopped collard greens are also available in frozen blocks of 10-oz. and 3-pounds, which can only be used for one meal.  Collard greens, also called collards, are a member of the cabbage family of vegetables.  Like other cruciferous plants, collards have been shown to help protect against cancer, particularly for those on a vegan diet.  Collards have also been shown to help protect against macular degeneration, an eye disease.  See our Cooking Collard Greens recipe section.  See the nutritional chart below.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
