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.
