½ medium onion, diced

Soyco Rice Parmesan Alternative

or use grated romano (sheep)

1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper 


1 tsp. good quality soy


Heat the oil in a large skillet.  When oil is hot, add onion, sprinkle with salt, and sauté over medium high heat 3-4 minutes.   Add the garlic and sauté 1-2 minutes then add crushed red pepper and sauté 1-2 minutes more.   Add the chopped greens and sauté a few minutes.  Next add the crushed tomatoes, ½ cup water, and soy sauce. Cover and simmer over low heat 10-15 minutes. Stir in the beans and cook 10 minutes more.

Place in serving bowls over rice or pasta or alone, and sprinkle with Soyco Rice Parmesan alternative and/or vegan mozzarella shreds.  Non-Vegan – Sprinkle with grated romano (sheep).

Serve over pasta or  brown rice.
