Giant Crusty and Creamy White Beans with Greens

I’ve been enjoying recipes in Heidi Swanson’s “Simply Natural Cooking.” While I don’t usually follow recipes to a T, a new cookbook always offers new inspiration, and Heidi’s recipes aren’t so complicated that they can’t be made for a weekday evening dinner. I also love her focus on vegetarian superfoods, grains, and vegetables! Above is the salad. I soaked the beans overnight and made the salad quickly the next day. Giant Crusty and Creamy White Beans with Greens delivered on their promise to be crispy fried on the outside and creamy inside. I used kale in the recipe because I had it, but you could substitute any dark leafy green and the recipe would work just as well.
