Greens and Beans by Katie

Simple, cheap, healthy, fast, filling, delicious. You could say this is some sort of wonder food.  I was not a fan as a kid but I’ve discovered a new found appreciation.  Ready?

Chop a head of escarole into bite-sized pieces.

Heat a 1/4 cup of good olive oil and a few cloves of chopped garlic over medium heat.

Add the escarole, cover the pan, and let it wilt, stirring pretty often for about 10 minutes- basically until everything is a nice bright green (as you cannot see in the picture below- not much light over the stove!).  Then add a can of cannelini beans or chickpeas- whichever you love.

Stir everything together and remove from the heat.  Let the flavors marry for a bit and eat up!

It makes an excellent side dish or a cheap meal in itself.
