Beans and Greens

 Known as poor man's food in Italy, this meal is fit to serve a king!

You’ll Need
  • 4 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1 can or 2 cups cooked cannellini beans (reserving 1/3 cup liquid)
  • 1 ½ pounds of chopped kale
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Freshly grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

Directions
  • In a medium pot, sauté sliced garlic and red pepper flakes in oil on low heat until the garlic starts to brown.
  • Add the beans including the liquid.
  • Add the chopped kale and simmer until they're cooked but still firm.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • If you would like it to be a bit more like a soup you can add some additional water.
  • Drizzle a little extra virgin olive oil on the top of each bowl and serve with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
  • Serve with a nice piece of bread. Enjoy!
