Butter Beans and Greens

I enjoying making new recipes. This one is inspired by several different recipes recipes I found online. My search began with an interest in finding additional ways to enjoy BUTTER BEANS. I love how butter beans melt in your mouth. They are a comfort food for me. I wanted to find a way to add texture and flavor to the beans to create a dish. 

I started with dry beans and re-hydrated them. You can start with canned beans and drain and rinse them. 


  1. 6 Garlic Cloves - smashed and diced
  2. 1/2 cup onion - diced
  3. 3 cups of Kale/Spinach/Chard  - diced
  4. Sun dried tomatoes (2 whole then diced or 3 TBSP of diced)
  5. 1 can of tomatoes (I used fire roasted with garlic)
  6. 2 cups of butter beans
  7. 1 TBSP Italian seasoning
  8. 1/2 TBSP crushed red pepper
  9. Olive oil (just enough so nothing sticks to the pan)

Serve: add parmesan cheese and/or cooked pasta


  1. Add the olive oil, sun dried tomatoes, garlic, and onion to the pan. Cook until the onions are translucent. 
  2. Add the spices and the tomatoes. Stir to combine.
  3. Add the greens and cook until wilted. Reduce heat.
  4. Add the beans so they absorb the flavor. 
  5. Cover for about 10 minutes.  Stir gently and turn off.
  6. If you want a "runnier" dish, you can add an additional can of tomatoes.
