Heat a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add Wright® Brand Smoked Bacon (3 slices) and cook until rendered and crisp. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate.

Add Garlic (4 cloves) and Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (1/2 tsp) and continue to cook for an additional 2 minutes.
Step 6
Toss in trimmed kale, Kosher Salt (1/4 tsp) , and Ground Black Pepper (1/4 tsp) and cook, stirring often until kale starts to wilt 3-5 minutes.
Step 7
Pour in Vegetable Broth (1 cup) and Water (1/2 cup) . Cover and cook for 12-15 minutes, stirring once or twice until the kale is soft.
