Trying to find a filling side beyond potatoes and rice can be challenging, not to mention time consuming. Try this easy, healthy, alternative instead.
2 tsps Olive Oil
1 T Minced garlic
1 Can White Kidney Beans
1 Bag Fresh Baby Spinach
Heat 2 tsps olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add garlic and saute for 2 min being careful not to let it burn. Add one can of rinsed white beans and a handful of salt and several grinds of black pepper ( you need to get the flavor into the beans before you add the spinach). Cook the beans with the garlic over medium heat for about 3 minutes to infuse flavor. Add 1 bag of baby spinach stirring until all spinach is wilted, put the lid on to steam and heat through, about 2 min on low-med. (this prevents the need to add more oil, the water from the beans will steam and heat the spinach). Add salt and pepper to taste.
