Instructions
  1. Heat oil in a large soup pot over medium-low heat. Add garlic and pepper flakes and cook, stirring often, until golden brown, about 3 to 5 minutes, do not burn.
  2. Add greens (in batches, if needed) and cook, tossing often, for about 1 minute.
  3. Add broth and herbs, stir to combine. Add another cup of broth or water for more soup-like consistency. Cover pot, turn heat to medium and let cook for 5 to 10 minutes until greens are wilted.
  4. Stir in beans, salt and pepper, and cook for about 5 more minutes. Serve immediately.
