Greens and Beans

Last night we got home from a fun weekend visiting the University of Oregon…our last college tour.
We were tired and hungry and I needed to come up with something healthy and quick for dinner. Our garden is still bursting with Kale and Swiss Chard so I sent Brad out to pick some. I grabbed a can of white beans and tricolor beans and my new favorite Miso Ginger Broth, a few more ingredients and voila quick delicious dinner! Add some thick warm crusty bread too. Divine!
