Kale and Beans Vegan

Kale, Swiss Chard & Pink Beans Bowl

Greens and beans, greens and beans! Aside from my all-time favorite Escarole & Beans, I have to say that this easy and garden-fresh dish is a close second. Whether you are vegan, vegetarian, or even a meat-eater, it is important to get your daily dose of greens into your diet. Not into kale? Well that’s fine, because you have a shit ton to choose from: spinach, escarole, romaine lettuce, swiss chard, collard greens, dandelion greens, the list goes on. This dish in particular is a double-dose for a double-whammy amount of greens. Kale and Red Swiss Chard go great together! Dump in those pretty pink beans and you have a protein and nutrient-packed meal.

Not to mention… red swiss chard is so so pretty.
