Anyone who knows me knows I am not the chef in our family. But, I’m also a big believer in equal division of labor in the house. So when I cook, I need the meals I make to be simple and tasty. Here is a recipe that doesn’t require much time or ingredients. It’s healthy and all 3 of our kids will eat without complaint–winner!

(Happy camper with a full mouth! If you have hard to please little ones you might try topping with shredded cheese)
2 cans beans-drained (cannellini, garbanzo and black beans are our family favorites)
1 clove garlic-minced
1 medium onion-diced
1 zucchini (green or yellow)-diced
1 bunch Rainbow chard (you could use kale, spinach, mustard greens, etc.)-finely chopped (and use the stems of the chard!)
2 Tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Heat olive oil in skillet. Cook garlic and onions until transparent. Add other ingredients and cook with lid until greens are wilted and zucchini soft. I added 1/4 cup of water for extra moisture during cooking. Serve and enjoy!!

This meal fed the 5 of us and the picture above is what we enjoyed for leftovers as a side with turkey burgers the next day.
