What You'll Need:

1 large onion, diced
3 cloves garlic OR 4 garlic scapes, minced
Olive oil

1 large bunch greens, chopped (Kale is perfect, but any greens work--spinach, collards, spring mix. If you like it spicy, go for mustard greens or arugula..)
3 c water or veggie broth
1 tsp sea salt
pepper to taste

1 can cannellini or white navy beans, rinsed and drained

Hard, sharp cheese, shredded from the block

Saute onion and garlic in a shallow soup pot with olive oil until aromatic.

Add chopped greens to pan, followed by water, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Lower to a simmer and cover. 

Cook for 15-20 minutes, or until the water has become a broth. (it will be dark). Add beans.

If you do dairy, serve topped with fresh shredded cheese.

Serves 2-3 as a main, 4-6 as a side. ENJOY!
