Garlicky Collards & White Beans October 2, 2011

Garlicky Collards & White Beans

Jamie says:  I made a late night shopping adventure to Publix for a battery for my bike computer.  I figured I’d get “a few” things from the grocery list, but that’s never the case.  I bought “a lot of vegetables” (according to the cashier at Publix).  One of my veggies was collard greens…

Garlicky Collards & White Beans


  • 2 Tbsp, 1/2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 16 oz bag collard greens (Glory Foods)
  • 15.5-oz can white beans, rinsed and drained
  • 4 cloves fresh garlic
  • 2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
  1. In a large pan on medium heat, add 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil.  Add collard greens, stir, and cook for about 15 minutes.
  2. Add beans, stir, and cook for an additional 5 minutes or until greens are soft.
  3. Meanwhile, peel and mince garlic.  In a small pan on medium heat, add 1/2 tsp extra virgin olive oil and cook minced garlic for about 1 minute, stirring frequently, until golden brown.
  4. Top collard greens with vinegar and crunchy garlic.  Enjoy!
Serves: 4.
The toasted, crunchy garlic and vinegar make these greens quite flavorful.
  • Nutrition note:  Collard greens are an excellent source of vitamins A, C, and K.  Go green leafy veggies!
