“Fresh greens combine with pantry classics of olive oil, crushed red pepper and canned cannellini beans in this simple and nutritious side dish that pairs well with hearty entrees, or serve with a side of hot cornbread for a southern meal. This dish can be made with a mix of your favorite greens such as spinach, mustard greens, curly endive, escarole, kale and broccoli rabe. NOTE: Make sure fresh greens are rinsed several times in sinkful of water to free dirt and debris; rinse greens until water is clear. Remove any tough stems. From Whole Foods Market recipes.”
