Happy Meatless Monday and Merry Christmas!

Today I wanted to share a delicious and vibrant side dish I am confident you’ll want to have make an appearance at your holiday table: Garlicky Kale with White Beans & Tomato. This beautiful vegan side is not only loaded with healthful fiber, nutrients, and comforting flavor, but it’s red and greens from the fresh kale and tomato are sure to get everyone into the Christmas spirit.

This recipe should make more than enough for 4 hungry eaters, but if you’re having more people at your table it can be easily doubled or tripled. This dish makes for delicious leftovers that you can enjoy once your guests have departed that can be bulked up for a more complete meal with lightly sautéed tofu or sliced avocado.
