stewed collard greens & white beans {made into soup}

Ending the day with more greens.  This recipe was adapted from here, but I've made my own version & turned it more into a soup {I didn't have the time/ingredients listed but I liked the idea}.

1 can of cannellini beans {I would have used 2 cans next time-we felt it lacked beans}
1/4 cup of virgin olive oil
1/2 red onion chopped
2 green onions chopped
4 cloves of garlic
red pepper flakes
1 bunch of collard greens cut into 3 inch strips {next time I would have used less and cut much smaller strips}
8 cups of water
salt

Heat oil in large pan, saute onion, garlic and red pepper flakes.  Add collard greens in batches, stir until wilted.  Add beans and water, bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer, covered,  until beans and greens are tender.  Garnish with fresh pepper. Next time I would actually let the soup simmer, we were starving and only let it simmer for about 15 minutes...

I LOVED this soup, my fiance was not a fan.  I bet it tastes a lot different with the parmesan rind it calls for in the recipe :)  but this is meant for a low cal-gluten free-vegan meal.

Enjoy!
