Greens N’ Beans

Jill Dalton
This has been a go-to recipe for me for years now. When I just can’t think of anything to make, this is what I usually end up with, but my family never complains because it is absolutely delicious. And for me it is a great recipe because it has loads of greens in it. You can use just about any green you want but I find that this is a good recipe to use the hardier greens like collards or kale.

  1. Oh my goodness! All I can say is…delicious! Not gonna lie, my husband & I were a little skeptical but I’m so glad we tried it because this is definitely a keeper! We used hot sauce & some of the cheese from your pizza recipe & it was out of this world!

    1. Right? I am always surprised at how delicious that dish is with such simple ingredients. I am so happy you liked it!

  2. Great presentation Jill, but may I please suggest that you tie back your hair because that piece hanging over your face was so annoying to watch.
