Slow Cooker: Kale-Spinach Cannellini Beans Side Dish

Yet another simple, tasty and healthy dish for those long days. I love it when you get home from work and not have to think about what to make for dinner.

I used a combination of Spinach and Kale. You can use just Spinach or Kale if you prefer.


  • Spinach - Washed and chopped - 2 cups
  • Kale - Washed and chopped  - 4 cups
  • Dried Cannellini beans - 2 cups (you can use any other dried beans)
  • Onion - Chopped - 1 medium (I used Red Onion)
  • Salt - 1 table spoon (add per taste)
  • Turmeric - 1 tea spoon
  • Coriander powder - 2 tea spoons
  • Cumin powder - 1 tea spoon
  • Red Chilly powder - 2 tea spoons (add per taste)
  • Water - 6 cups

Add all the above ingredients to the slow cooker and cook it at high for 6-8 hours.  Add more water if you like a little diluted consistency.  Mix well, drizzle some Olive oil and serve with Bread, Chapati, Naan, Roti, Rice or you can eat by itself.
