Greens and Beans by Ashley

This is a recipe I tried from Parenting Magazine. Jeremy, Blake, Tyler, and I loved it. Gray didn't love it and Sam absolutely not!!!

Ingredients:
1 pkg corn muffin mix (i used jiffy)
1 tbs olive oil
1 red bell pepper, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 15-oz cans Great Northern beans, rinsed and drained
1 pkg (10 oz.) frozen spinach, thawed and drained
1/2 c. chicken broth
1/2 c. water
2 Tbs. finely shredded Parmesan cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions:
1. Prepare corn muffin mix according to directions.
2. In the meantime, heat the oil on medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add red pepper and garlic; cook for about 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3. Mix in the canned beans. Add spinach, chicken broth, and the water; bring to a boil. Cook, uncovered, for 3 to 4 minutes or until most of the liquid has evaporated.
4. Put in bowls and top each with cheese and serve with cornbread.

****Jeremy really liked it but he didn't think it was filling enough, so you might want to make it as a side or maybe you could add grilled chicken.
