Vegan Kielbasa w/ 3 "Greens"

A hearty meal with broccoli raab aka broccoli rabe or rapini, escarole and broccoli.  I added white beans and had it all over organic long grain brown rice. 

You'll need:
1 head of broccoli raab, cut into small pieces
1 head of broccoli, cut into florets
1 head of escarole, cut into small pieces - wash this VERY well - it's extremely sandy
1 can white beans, drained and rinsed
3 cloves garlic, minced
brown rice, cooked (you can serve it over couscous or quinoa too)
4 vegan kielbasa links
splash of balsamic vinegar, optional

I sliced the vegan kielbasa and drizzled a tiny bit of olive oil on top and baked it in the oven until crispy - turning once to get it browned evenly.  In a large pot I added olive oil and garlic and let simmer over a low flame until fragrant.  Now you can add in your broccoli raab, escarole and broccoli.  Season with sea salt.  Cook until almost tender.  Add in beans and cook until greens are tender.  You can add a splash of balsamic vinegar to the greens and mix well if you'd like - it gives it a nice "bite".  Mix in the kielbasa and serve over rice.  Enjoy!  :)
