Greens & Beans Nutrition
This dish is a nutrient powerhouse that tastes amazing. If you follow me on Instagram, you know I make this recipe at least once a week in the summer when there is an abundance of fresh kale or swiss chard in my garden. I love the fresh flavors paired with awesome health benefits.
The white beans in this dish provide you with the plant-based protein and dietary fiber needed to keep you full all night long, while kale will give you vitamins K, A & C, calcium and B vitamins, and even more fiber.
Don’t care for kale?
No worries! You can use any hearty green in this dish including spinach, collard greens, swiss chard, or beet greens.
If you’re looking for a little more flavor, add a bit of mozzarella cheese to the dish, but if you’re vegan go ahead and skip the cheese and enjoy this tasty meal as is.
