Adapted from Kickin' Collard Greens Recipe .
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 slices bacon
2 small shallots
3 turns of the salt grinder (or a pinch of salt)
1 teaspoon pepper
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 pinch red pepper flakes (if you like it spicy, add some more)
1 pound fresh collard greens, cut into 2-inch pieces
Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add bacon, and cook until crisp. Remove bacon from pan, crumble and return to the pan. Add shallots, and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add collard greens, and fry until they start to wilt. Pour in chicken broth, and season with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 45 minutes, or until greens are tender.
