Greens Soup Recipe

What do you do with greens that are a little less crisp?  Make soup!  I have a habit of checking my refrigerator each Sunday to find things that I have overlooked (or forgot about) during the week.  Sometimes these vegetables are a little more wilted and they go into a soup recipe where they will be wilted on purpose.  That is my plan for today’s collard greens that the farm reports as delicious, but not crisp. You can puree any type of greens to add to soup broth.
