Beans and Greens with Sausage

a piece of toasted bread with greens and beans and sausage on top, on a black plate

A one-pot, super satisfying and good-for-you dinner that you can eat on huge slices of crusty bread!




  1. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the sausage, breaking it up with a wooden spoon. Lower the heat to medium, add the onion and garlic and cook for a few minutes, until soft.
  2. Stir in the greens, white beans, pine nuts (if using), paprika, crushed red pepper, and salt to taste.
  3. Add 1 C of chicken stock and let it simmer and reduce for a few minutes. If you want more sauciness, add more chicken stock. Squeeze a bit of lemon juice over top, taste and season with salt and pepper if needed. Serve over toasted crusty bread.


Joey and I reheated the leftover bean/green/sausage mixture with a little heavy cream, tossed it with pasta, and sprinkled parmesan on top – equally as yummy!
