  • Summary

    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.

    Ingredients

    • 12 ounces dry cannellini beans
    • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 onion, finely chopped
    • 4 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    • 1 bunch collard greens (about 2 lbs.), stems removed and leaves cut into 3-inch-thick strips
    • 1 3- to 4-inch piece Parmesan rind
    • 7 cups water
    • Coarse salt
    • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
