Kale with White Beans
Rating (0 Rated)
From our Winter 2012 issue of Graze magazine. This is one of our most requested side dish recipes and one of the easiest to make. It’s wonderful served as is, with cornbread on the side, and equally good paired with barbeque chicken. Although we make all of our beans from scratch, you can easily use canned beans to save time. 
serves 6


1, 15 ounce can low- or no-salt navy beans, rinsed, or 1 1/2 cups cooked navy beans
2 – 3 large bunches of kale, about 8 cups, washed and roughly chopped (Note: Our dish uses curly kale, but you can choose any type)
3 tablespoons canola oil
2 yellow onions, diced
1/4 cup reduced sodium tamari
3/4 teaspoon arrowroot
1 tablespoon Bac’Uns – vegetarian bacon flavored bits
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
