If greens are a side dish for a Thanksgiving dinner, cooks should keep in mind they do not have to boil greens for hours. In fact, doing so pulls nutrients out of them, said Teresa Henson, Extension specialist-program outreach coordinator at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff.

"Save time and nutrients by cooking greens for only 30 minutes," she said. "This recipe makes a wonderful dish for your holiday meal."
