  • Summary

    Greens and Beans is one of my favorite Italian recipes. It's quick and easy to make, tastes delicious and is very healthy! Made with escarole and beans it is easy cheap to make and is a great Meatless Monday option.

    Ingredients

    • 3 bunches of escarole, cleaned and trimmed
    • 3 Tbsp. of olive oil
    • Garlic (at least 5 cloves, more if you like it extra garlicky)
    • Crushed red pepper flakes, to taste
    • 2 14.5 oz. cans of cannellini beans (you can drain them if you want, if not the sauce will be thicker)
    • 1-2 14.5 oz. cans of chicken broth (if you use two it will be more like a soup)
    • Salt and pepper to taste
