Greens & Beans

 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup plus 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil 

  • 1 large bunch kale, leaves stripped off stems 

  • 1 clove garlic, smashed 

  • 1/4 cup roasted pine nuts or whole, skinned almonds 

  • 2 cups loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves and soft stems

  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt 

  • Freshly ground black pepper 

  • 2 tablespoons water 

  • 1 (15-ounce) can great Northern beans, drained and rinsed 

Directions

  1. Warm 1 teaspoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat until shimmering.
  2. Meanwhile, wash the kale but don't dry the leaves too much. Rip the leaves into smaller pieces if you wish, but I like leaving them whole. Add the kale to the skillet - watch out, it will splutter. Toss with tongs and immediately cover and lower the heat.
  3. Meanwhile, make the cilantro pesto. In a small food processor, whizz up the garlic, almonds, cilantro, salt, pepper, remaining 1/2 cup olive oil, and water until smooth.
  4. Remove the lid and check the kale; the leaves should be tender. Add the beans and cilantro pesto and toss. Taste and adjust seasonings, and then cook another 5 minutes until warmed through. Serve and feel good about all the greens you're eating!
