RECIPE: White Beans with Spinach and Tomato

I am taking care of my sister while she recovers from surgery and needed a quick high-protein meal to serve for lunch so I took this recipe for white beans with swiss chard and modified it.  It was ready in 20 minutes.

White Beans with Spinach and Tomato
serves 3 as a meal or 6 as a side.

1 T. ghee (I use Pure Indian Foods or Ancient Organics)
1/2 cup yellow onion, chopped
4 small garlic cloves sliced
pinch pepper flakes (more if you like heat)
1 cup Jovial whole peeled tomatoes with their juice, crushed and stem ends removed
1 16 oz can Eden Foods organic beans, rinsed (I used garbanzo, you can use any other bean*)
5 oz container fresh spinach
1-2 T. balsamic vinegar
Himalayan pink salt to taste

On medium heat, saute onion and garlic in ghee until onion is softened, about 5 minutes.

Add pepper flakes then tomatoes.  Stir until heated.

Add beans and stir until almost all liquid is evaporated, 3-5 minutes.

Add spinach and stir until wilted.

Remove from heat, season with salt, add balsamic and serve.

* I have not made this with black or pinto beans.
