Chicken Sausage, Kale + Beans

 Trying to get my husband to eat kale or any greens for that matter is like trying to get a cat to take a bath.  I have attempted several times to kind of "sneak" greens in dinner and have failed miserably.  However, my mom told me about this dish, which she originally made with escarole, and everyone loved it, even Ryan!  It is a staple in my household and it is virtually carb-free and loaded with nutrients and protein.



 
Ingredients:

  • 1 large bunch of kale (chopped)
  • 1 package of chicken sausage, sliced (I used Al Fresco with spinach & feta)
  • 1 tblsp olive oil
  • 1 lemon
  • 2-3 cloves garlic (minced/chopped)
  • 1/2 cup chicken or vegetable broth (I use low sodium)


Directions: Heat olive oil in large sauté pan over medium heat.  Add sausage and cook for 3-4 minutes.  Add garlic, kale, white beans, and chicken broth and let cook over medium heat.  Squeeze fresh lemon and stir in as you cook for 5 minutes.  Enjoy!
