Sometimes life dictates dinner. We need something fast and quick to get on the table. Sometimes we need to bulk up leftovers or supply a quick dish to go along with something else we already have on hand.
Needing something quick doesn’t mean that it has to come from a box or be a processed food item. Or even something premade. We can make quick dishes at home with only a few ingredients.
This dish fits those requirements. It uses few ingredients and can be made very quickly.
I’m sharing an idea and a concept with you which means the measurements aren’t exact. The amounts are up to you!
Andrea’s Sautteed Greens with Beans and Corn
- Greens, finely chopped (Whichever greens you like)
- 1 15oz Can of Black Beans, drained and rinsed
- Frozen or Fresh Corn Kernels
- Olive Oil for sauteeing
- Garlic Powder
- Chili Powder
- Red Pepper Flakes
In a sautee pan, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add in greens and start sauteeing. Sautee for about 5 minutes. Add in the beans and corn along with the seasonings. Continue to sautee for about another 5 minutes or until everything is cooked and heated through.
Plate and serve!
You can use fresh greens for this or you can use frozen chopped greens. The amount of seasonings are up to you and you can use which ever you like!
Adding a touch of butter and a little hot sauce to this dish would probably be a good idea but of course it’s totally up to you!
Beans, frozen corn, and frozen greens are all great things to have on hand at all times. They can easily be added to bulk up dishes or used to make quick meals.
Putting quick dishes on the table for yourself and your family can be easy and only take a few ingredients. Not being afraid to try different combinations will open up a lot of new dishes and cooking experiences.
