BEANS & GREENS



~ Frugal Living NW

2 T. olive oil
2-3 c. cubed potatoes, 1/2" or smaller (sweet, red, or brown)
1/2 c. diced onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
1-2 c. white beans (garbanzo, great northern, or navy)
2 c. finely shredded greens (cabbage, kale, spinach, or chard)
salt, to taste
1/2 c. shredded cheese (parmesan, swiss, mozzarella, or goat)

Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add cubed potatoes and cook stirring occasionally, for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned and mostly cooked.

Add onions and cook 5 minutes, stirring often. Add garlic and beans, cooking for 5 minutes. Add cabbage and salt, then cook and stir a few minutes until cabbage is slightly wilted but still has some crunch and color.

Remove from heat and sprinkle with cheese.

Notes: If you don't have a large enough skillet, then remove the potatoes when they are done cooking, cook the remaining ingredients separate from the potatoes, then combine everything in a serving dish after after cooking. If you combine everything in a crowded small pan, then nothing will brown or get crispy. 

Photo notes: I've never posted two pictures of a recipe before, but I wanted to show the different ways we've made this. The top picture had navy beans, sweet potatoes, and swiss cheese. The bottom picture had garbanzo beans, russet potatoes, and parmesan cheese.
