Cannellini Beans and Broccoli

Updated: Sep 2, 2020

One of the favorite combinations in the whole food, plant-based diet is "beans and greens". Yes, broccoli is considered a green! Try this recipe with other greens as well: bok choy, collards, arugula, kale, spinach, Brussels sprouts, or cauliflower (yes, cauliflower is part of the "greens" family too!).
