  Servings: 4


  • 2 c. cooked beans
  • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil (orig was 3 tbsp)
  • 1 x onion finely diced
  • 1 x carrot finely diced
  • 2 x cloves garlic (my addition)
  • 1 x bay leaf
  • 1 tsp dry oregano
  • 1 bn broccoli rabe salt and pepper
  • 1 c. liquid
  • 2 Tbsp. minced parsley thin slices parmesan cheese optional


  1. I used canned Great Northern Beans
  2. I used soy sauce
  3. orig called for bean cooking liquid; I used 1 c. vegetable broth
  4. Saute/fry the onion, carrot, bay leaf, oregano and garlic in the extra virgin olive oil for about 8 min. Add in the rabe and broth. When wilted, add in the beans and simmer, till the greens are done, 15 - 20 min. Add in more liquid as needed.
  5. Garnish with parsley and cheese.
  6. Madison recommends serving this with garlic croutons to soak up the sauce.
  7. I served it with brown rice.
  8. NOTES : We tried broccoli rabe last night for the first time, and we liked it. It is somewhat bitter, so sweetness from the carrots and the vegetable broth were nice complements. I think parsnips would be good in this, too. Other strong greens such as collards, mustard or possibly turnip greens would work well, too.
  9. You can eliminate the oil entirely and saute/fry the veggies in broth.
  10. Then the dish would be virtually fatfree.
  11. Madison suggests serving this in a soup bowl with garlic croutons.
  12. I served it over brown rice. And DH smothered it with warm sauce.
  13. This came together very quickly, and it was very good. This is a simple meal which includes protein, grains, and greens. It's a keeper!
