A classic recipe that can be made weekly and paired with various simple sides. Make it over and over again with different greens and beans each time!


 34 garlic cloves, minced
 1 onion, diced
 2 white beans, cooked
 1 cup kale, de-stemmed and chopped
 2 swiss chard, de-stemmed and chopped
 1 lemon, juiced
 1 pinch crushed red pepper flakes, optional

In a pan, saute onion and garlic until translucent (either in dry pan or using 1 Tbsp water)


Add white beans, greens, and lemon juice from 1 lemon. Stir and cover. Let cook for 2-5 minutes, until greens are wilted. Stir frequently. (Add 1 Tbsp of water if needed to prevent sticking)


Remove from heat. Top with crushed red pepper flakes if desired.
