Greens and Beans

Stop me if you have heard this one before. Greens and beans, my comfort food.


Like most comfort meals you can use what you have on hand and what you like.

I had a little more than 1 bunch worth of different greens.

Here is the basic recipe and what else you will need;

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, sliced
Red pepper flakes if you like, they are nice with greens
1 to 1 1/2 bunches of kale, chard, collards, beet greens, anything you have, washed, stems trimmed and chopped.
1 (15- ounce) can of beans. I used white beans today, drained
About 2 cups of any kind of stock you have on hand. Sometimes I use miso,  in a pinch water will do.  But  broth with the greens and beans make a nice pot liquor.

Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a pan large enough to hold all the greens.
Add onion and garlic slices. Saute until tender about 3 minutes. Add the greens and saute until it cooks down slightly. Add the beans and the chicken stock.

Cover and cook for 10 minutes or so and add red pepper flakes if you are using them and taste and see if you need salt or pepper. Greens are naturally salty and stock is usually salted so you might not need any.


I love this with rice or grains or pasta.

Have a great week. I’ll see you at pickup.
