Taste of the South

Dinner tonight was Southern Beans n’ Greens with the leftover brown rice from last night. I turned it into what Susan Levin calls “Beans, Greens, and Grains.” Henceforth to be known as BG&G because I have a feeling I’ll be making a lot of similar combos.

It was a super easy meal to create. I’d never cooked with kale before, and learned two things.

1. It’s easiest to remove the ribs with the leaf facing down.

2. Kale really cooks down. Buy a bit more than you think you’ll need.


So I just spooned the beans n’ greens over the grains and squeezed a little lemon juice on top. This meal didn’t have as many textures going on as last night’s (I loved the crunchy celery) but it was good! I was hungry again around 11 p.m. so I had a handful of trail mix and a Clementine.
