Beans And Greens
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 5 minutes
1 bunch (app. 20 med. leaves) collards
1 cup FRESH butterbeans (limas or blackeyed peas would work also)
1 small Onion, chopped
1 or 2 fresh hot peppers, seeded and chopped
1/2 cup White wine
2 Bay leaves
Put the wine in the pressure cooker and add the rinsed beans, the bay leaves, and enough water to cover. Put the heat on medium to medium high, and do not cover (yet). Let the beans simmer as you prepare the greens: rinse each leaf, devein, stack flat on top of one another, roll them up tightly, and slice across the roll to shred them nicely.
Add the onions to the beans and cook until just translucent. Add the greens and the hot peppers and mix well. Put the lid onto the pressure cooker and bring up to pressure. Cook at pressure for about 3 minutes. Cool the cooker under cool water. Serve the beans and greens with your favorite vinegar (like apple cider, balsamic, or rice).
