Kale and red onions with white beans


Kale is versatile and hearty and one of my favorite dark greens to cook with. Whether I’m putting it in smoothies, soups, or just sauteeing it with lemon and garlic, the result is always great. This kale and red onion side dish goes well with many different proteins and is easy to make. The addition of white beans adds some starch and pleasant texture.

1 red onion in thin slices
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 bunch of kale (or about 4 gently packed cups) washed and chopped
1 can of white, drained and rinsed
2 tbs of lemon juice
Olive oil
Salt & pepper

1. Drizzle about 1 tbs of olive oil in a large saute pan on medium heat. Saute garlic and onions until tender.
2. Add kale and lemon juice and sautee until kale begins to wilt.
3. Add white beans and cook until everything is heated through.
4. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Best served warm.

    I’m adding some garlic salt instead of garlic cloves, hope it’s fine, as I don’t wanna use garlic here directly…
