Kind of came up with this one on my own one day when I just didn't feel up to going to the store, so I used what ingredients I had in my pantry and fridge and voila! This collard greens and bean soup is now in my daily meal rotation, especially in the fall and winter! Serve with cornbread or biscuits.

Great soup. It is thick so some people might prefer more broth. The only change I made was I cooked the beans rather than using canned. In order to lower sodium I cooked them without salt. It is very hearty with lots of flavor. Read More

5 stars. Made as written my only negative would be that this soup is very thick. Next time I may add another can of broth. Do not thaw the collard greens just drop them in the soup when ready. I think the juices from the collard greens is what makes the soup!!! Definite keeper!! Read More
