Greens and Beans

Great one dish meal. Quick and easy and so tasty.

Greens and Beans (Serves 2) adapted from Mary McDougall

  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, pressed or minced fine
  • 1 cup filtered water or vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon chili paste
  • 15 ounce can Butter Beans or Cannellini Beans, drained
  • Large bunch of kale torn from stems and coarsely chopped

Place onion and garlic in a large pot with ¼ cup water or broth. Cook stirring frequently until onion and garlic soften.

Add remaining broth, chili paste and beans and bring to a boil. Then add the kale. cover and simmer 15 minutes or until kale is tender.

Note: When the dish was cooked, I added 1½ cups cooked brown rice, one zucchini and one yellow summer squash cut in medium pieces, and ½ cup raw cashews. This makes it a very filling one-dish meal.
