"This is so simple that I hesitate to even call it a recipe. But it is my favorite lunch of all time. Savory and satisfying, and full of vitamins, minerals, and fiber. The recipe given is for one, but it can easily be doubled (or more) to feed more people. A main dish for vegans, or a side dish for meat-eaters, you can't go wrong with this recipe."

The garden out did itself with chard & kale so I love it when I find a tasty recipe like this to use some. I don't microwave so I did it stove top. I cooked the greens in chicken stock for about 20 minutes, added the beans for a further 5 minutes, drained & served with a pat of butter - delicious
