Reviews for Beans & Spinach
"I also add some red pepper flakes."
"I make this with kale instead of spinach. One of our favorite side dishes."
"I dont really like spinach but love this recipe-I throw in a handful of walnuts to toast rite after i remove the garlic-yum!"
"Just ok, needs more flavor"
"Very nice side dish! I rendered some bacon fat and sautéed the garlic and onions in it (so it wasn't a heart-healthy version). I love garlic, so I didn't discard it. I also love onions, but I found that 1 large onion was plenty. Will definitely make this again!"
