Crock Pot Collard Greens and Ham Hocks


This meal should be eaten occasionally because of the higher sodium count

3 servings 

Each serving provides
2 1/4 condiments
1 lean
3 greens

10.16 oz. fresh collard greens or 8 cups
1/2 cup chopped scallions
Ham Hocks ( I got a package of ham hocks that had 2 in there. The ham hocks are basically for flavor. They tend to be very fatty and when it was all cooked there was not much there.)
15 oz. low sodium Ham cubed
12 oz. low sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons sugar free pancake syrup
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Put all but the 15 oz. ham in the crock pot and cook on medium for approximately 5 hours. Remove the ham hocks and serve the collard greens and broth into 3 bowls. At this time I divided up my ham cubes into 3 separate portions of 5 oz. each and heated them up. I did it this way so each serving would get the exact amount required. Then add your warmed up ham to each dish and mix in. ENJOY
