Ingredients for 4 servings:
1. 400 g small dried white beans, such as French navy beans or 400 g cannellini beans, soaked overnight
2. 2 medium onions, 1 cut in half, 1 thinly sliced
3. 1 small carrot
4. 1 thyme, sprig
5. 1 rosemary sprig
6. 1 bay leaf
7. 1500 ml water
8. 1 vegetable stock cube
9. 2 tablespoons butter
10. 1 tablespoon olive oil
11. 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
12. 300 g collard greens, stems cut, leaves coarsely torn into small pieces
13. 300 g quality smoked sausage, cut into smaller pieces
