Total Time


½ cup prepared barbecue sauce (see Shopping Tip)½ cup water2 Tbsp tomato paste1 Tbsp molasses⅛ tsp salt freshly ground pepper to taste1 Tbsp canola oil1 medium onion, chopped4 cup chopped collard greens (about 10 ounces), tough stems removed9 oz cooked chicken sausage links (about 3 links), halved lengthwise and sliced2 15-ounce cans great northern or navy beans, rinsed (see Note)


1. Whisk barbecue sauce, water, tomato paste, molasses, salt and pepper in a medium bowl.

2. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and collard greens and cook, stirring occasionally, until the collards are wilted, 3 to 5 minutes. Add sausage and cook, stirring, until beginning to brown, about 3 minutes more.

3. Reduce heat to medium-low; add beans and the sauce mixture to the pan. Gently stir to combine, cover and cook until heated through, about 3 minutes.

Shopping tip: Check the sodium of your favorite barbecue sauce--some can be quite high. This recipe was developed with a sauce containing 240 mg sodium per 2-tablespoon serving.

Note: While we love the convenience of canned beans, they tend to be high in sodium. Give them a good rinse before adding to a recipe to rid them of some of their sodium (up to 35 percent) or opt for low-sodium or no-salt-added varieties. (These recipes are analyzed with rinsed, regular canned beans.) Or, if you have the time, cook your own beans from scratch.
