Step 1: Preparing the Dish

Preparing the Dish
  • 1 recipe No-Oil Mushroom Gravy
  • 1 1/2 cup Great Northern or other white beans, cooked and drained
  • 1 bunch chard or dark leafy greens, such as collards, kale or mustard greens, tough stems removed and leaves thinly sliced
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper


First, prepare your mise en place.

In a medium sauce pan, bring the No-Oil Mushroom Gravy to a simmer. Remove from the heat and then add the white beans, leafy greens and freshly-ground black pepper. Stir well and then simmer for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the greens have just started to wilt and become vibrant.

Remove from heat, cover with a lid and allow to sit for a few minutes before serving.

Serve over brown rice or whole grain pasta.

    Not sure how long to cook dry butter beans that have soaked overnight. They always seem to 'explode' and get messes in the pan while cooking!

    Hello Ardith, my first recommendation is to cook them on a slow/medium heat while checking their progress every 15 min. You might try cooking them without pre-soaking. Feel free to follow up with me directly if you have further questions. - Chris
