Southern Greens

Southern Greens Veganized Perfect Southern Greens (Kale, Beet, Collard Greens, Mustard)
1 bunch kale
1 bunch beet leaf or other greens (collards, mustard, turnip)
1 large onion, sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 jalapeno peppers, minced (discard seeds for less heat)
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 cup cubed vegan ham, or tempeh, or tofu
3 slices vegan bacon
2 1/2 cups water (more if needed)
salt and pepper
balsamic vinegar (optional)

1. Tear greens into large pieces and discard the thick vein. Add greens to a pot of boiling salted water (I use kosher salt). Let boil for about 6 minutes. Drain and Rinse.
2. While the greens are boiling, preheat a heavy skillet with olive oil, add onion and garlic; sauté until onions are lightly brown, add minced jalapeno peppers and cook for an additional minute or two.
3. Put the sautéed onions in the slow-cooker then add the drained greens, ham, bacon, crushed red pepper and water.
4. Cook on high for 4 hours or until greens are tender.
5. Serve with balsamic vinegar, optional.
