I thought I would share our recipe with you from last night. This can be eaten by itself as a vegetarian meal or served with a side of chicken as I did.
This recipe for Beans and Greens is easy, peasy and delicious. Canned white beans, fresh kale, and onions all come together for a wonderful side dish or vegetarian meal.
I served mine with Chicken Cutlets as suggested in the original recipe and it made for a wonderful and heart healthy meal. I cooked up the chicken first and then used the same pan with the chicken bits stuck to the bottom, to cook the beans and greens. If you want a vegetarian meal follow the directions below but use vegetable broth or water instead of the chicken broth.
