Greens and Beans

I just wanted to share a quick recipe; super simple and super delicious and back to an older, simpler way of life. 

Greens and Beans:

Here I used home grown rapini (broccoli rabe) that we are growing this winter in our greenhouse, but  you can use any green you like.  Kale, mustard greens, beet greens, turnip greens; they all work well here.  I just sort and wash the greens (about a pound) in cool water and shake any excess water from the leaves.  I toss them in a large saute pan and drizzle them with olive oil.  I add pressed and also chopped garlic and saute until greens are tender and then I add in my beans.  I used a can of chick peas here, but you can use cannellini beans, navy beans or something similar here.  And that is it!  Absolutely delicious and quite filling. 

Hearty appetite!
