From  the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s new cookbook:


Chicken Broth with Mustard Greens and Tomatoes

Serves 4; 1 cup per serving

  • 4 cups fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 small carrot, thinly sliced
  • 4 large mustard green leaves, coarsely chopped (about 4 cups)
  • 2 medium Italian plum (Roma) tomatoes, diced
  • 2 ounces diced lower-sodium, low-fat ham, all visible fat discarded (about 1/4 cup)
  • 2 medium green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon imitation bacon bits
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes


In a large saucepan, bring the broth and carrot to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 5 minutes, or until the carrot is almost tender.

Stir in the remaining ingredients. Increase the heat to medium high and return to a simmer. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes, or until the greens are tender.
