Sautéed Spinach with Cannellini Beans

A wonderful breakfast is a great way to start the day. Something that I've eaten all my life is the Italian version of "beans on toast" which is spinach and cannellini beans accompanied with garlic, olive oil and chilli.

It's definitely one you can make in less than 10 mins and one you'll continue to make for years. A tasty and healthy meal that will surely send your tastebuds tingling.

Change up your breakfast routine and give it a try!

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 large cloves of garlic, peeled and thinly sliced
