White Bean and Escarole Side Dish

1 can-canelloni/white beans
1 bunch escarole lettuce
1-2 Tbl-extra virgin olive oil
Pinch-red pepper flakes
S&P to taste
Optional-minced garlic or garlic powder

In a small saucepan, heat entire contents of can of beans (including liquid) and the red pepper flakes over medium heat. Bring to just boil.
Meanwhile, heat olive oil in larger frypan and add escarole in. Add S&P and garlic if using. Cook down.
Once both parts are cooked, add beans into frypan and stir to combine.

This side dish is absolutely delicious. It is so simple and inexpensive to make. The liquid from the beans creates almost a creamy sauce when heated, and combined with the unique taste of escarole, it is just so yummy.

  1. UPDATE: This recipe works great with kale too!!! Kale just takes a little longer to cook, and make sure you get the stems out b/c they are not good tasting. xoXO
