White Beans with Greens
This recipe comes from the newsletter of Telltale Farm--as do the vegetables that we used in the recipe! This mixture is so tasty. I had it for dinner and for lunch the next day and wished we had more of it again for dinner that night!
You will need:
2 (12 oz) cans white beans, drained
3 tablespoons olive oil
Salt to taste
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 bunch kale, cut into wide ribbons
Fresh ground black pepper
Extra virgin olive oil for drizzling
Grated Parmesan for topping
Follow these steps:
Heat the oil over med-high heat in the widest skillet available. Add the beans to the hot pan and stir to coat the beans with the oil. Let them sit long enough to brown on one side, about 3 or 4 minutes, before turning to brown the other side, also about 3 or 4 minutes. The beans should be golden and a bit crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. Salt to taste, then add the onion and garlic and cook for 1 or 2 minutes, until the onion softens. Stir in the greens and cook until just beginning to wilt. Remove from the heat and season to taste with a generous dose of salt and pepper. Drizzle with a bit of extra virgin olive oil, and sprinkle with grated parmesan.
