Kale and Cannellini Beans with Garlic
Sautéed kale and buttery-tasting cannellini beans are tossed with lots of garlic for a quick and healthy side dish.
Recipe type: Dinner
Serves: 4 (as a side)
  • 4 tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 1 bunch of kale, center rib removed and leaves chopped (about 10 cups)
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup vegetable or chicken broth
  • 1½ cups (or 1- 15 oz. can) cooked cannellini beans, rinsed
  • dash cayenne
  • ⅛-1/4 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 tsp. Sherry wine vinegar
  • salt, to taste
  1. Heat 3 tablespoons of oil in a large saute pan over medium high heat. Add kale and stir occasionally until kale has begun to wilt, about 3-4 minutes.
  2. Push kale to one side of the pan, add remaining tablespoon of oil and minced garlic. Stir garlic in the oil until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Then pour in the broth and stir into kale and garlic. As the broth begins to evaporate (2-3 minutes), add the nutmeg and cayenne and stir.
  3. When all the broth is nearly gone, stir in vinegar and any salt, if needed.
  4. Consume with reckless abandon!
