Simple “Beans and Greens”

Combine two nutritional powerhouses into one dish and you’ve got Beans and Greens! When you take a look at foods rich in antioxidants and fiber, both beans and greens top the lists. I like pressure-cooking both together. You can use pretty much any variety of beans but I find kale and collards hold up best in the pressure cooking process. Lighter greens, like spinach and chard, kind of disintegrate in the pot.

Warning- the finished product is not usually as beautiful as my image here. I used yellow eyed beans and was particularly impressed by how lovely they were.
