Butter Beans with Lemon Garlic Collards

If collards aren’t available, try the freshest available dark greens. For a tender and amazingly flavorful variation, try using mixed baby greens. Lima beans make a decent substitution for the butter beans if you can’t find butter beans at your local grocer.

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 2 tsp. garlic, minced
  • 1 large head collard greens, washed and sliced
  • 1¼ cups butter beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice

Directions

  1. Heat oil over medium heat.
  2. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant.
  3. Stir in collards, cover and cook over low heat 5 minutes.
  4. Add remaining ingredients and heat through. Serve hot.
