Greens and Beans on Toast

Servings 2


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 bunch kale stems removed and leaves torn
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 can cannellini beans drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • salt + pepper
  • 1/4 cup parmesan plus more for serving
  • 1 tablespoons fresh basil torn
  • good crusty bread


  1. In a medium saute pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and red pepper flakes and toast for 1 minute until fragrant. Tear in the kale leaves and stir to coat in the olive oil and garlic.

  2. Pour in the beans and stir. Squeeze in the lemon juice and add a pinch of salt and pepper and cook for 5 minutes until beans have softened.

  3. Squeeze in the lemon and add the parmesan and fresh basil. Stir and cook 1 more minute to let the parmesan melt.

  4. Toast a slice or 2 of bread per person (or can always make more!)

  5. Serve a heaping pile of greens over the toast and sprinkle more Parmesan and crushed red pepper on, if desired. Dig in with a fork and knife or just your hands!
