Barley with Collard Greens and White Beans
Barley with Collard Greens and White Beans
  • 1 large bunch of collard greens, stems removed, rinsed and chopped (to save time, you can get the pre-washed and pre-chopped greens in a bag)
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp whole-grain flour
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 (15 oz) can white beans, rinse and drained (I used Great Northern)
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 4.5 cups cooked barley (I cooked it in advance of suppertime because it can take 30-45 minutes)
  1. Blanch greens in 4 cups of water for 1-2 minutes, until cooked down and starting to darken in color. Drain.
  2. Saute' onion and garlic for 5 minutes or until onion is translucent.
  3. Whisk together flour and vegetable broth in a bowl and add to onion mixture. Bring to a boil, and add beans and black pepper. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring, for 1 minute.
  4. Add blanched greens and cooked barley, and simmer, stirring frequently, until nearly all liquid is absorbed. Serve warm.
