Stewed Collard Greens and White Beans

Cannellini beans are full of fiber and protein. Collards, rich in vitamins A and K and calcium, are in the cancer-fighting cruciferous family. Parmesan rind -- don't toss it! -- lends an incredibly rich flavor. (No bacon required.) Use leftovers to make a Collard Greens and White Beans Quesadilla.

    To the other two commentators: cooking time depends on how old your beans areā€”the older, the longer they will take. It's a shame this recipe doesn't mention this. Your water hardness can also factor in. However, I have made this using Rancho Gordo beans and the stated cooking time was perfect!

    The other commenter here was correct--the stated cooking time is not in any way sufficient for the beans to get tender. I soaked mine according to the recipe's directions, and even so, it took well over 2 hours before they were cooked all the way through. The flavors are nice (I did mix in some low-sodium chicken broth with the water, to give the dish a little boost), and the parmesan rind brings some nice depth, but next time, I'll soak the beans overnight and plan for much more cooking time.

    The time listed is not long enough to get the beans soft. and it really had no flavor. I had to add a ton of salt and cook it for about an hour longer.
