This is the ultimate comfort food for me. It’s incredibly flavoursome, creamy, and just really bakes my biscuit! It’s a doddle to make and is very potent. It works as a simple meal or a side dish with other things, too.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
olive oil, for cooking
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
400g canned cannellini beans, drained
400g canned butter beans, drained
120g curly kale
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese, grated
1/4 teaspoon chilli flakes, (optional)
sea salt
black pepper

Method

  1. Heat a pan with a little olive oil and add the garlic. Cook over a medium-high heat – this is one of those rare occasions that I encourage you to let the garlic go brown. This gives the dish a unique, smoky flavour.
  2. At this point, add the beans and tear in the curly kale (tear it into small pieces straight into the pan). Season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook for about 7–8 minutes, or until just tender but still crisp.
  3. At this stage, add 1 tablespoon of the Parmesan and stir well. Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle the remaining Parmesan on top, along with some chilli flakes, if using. Serve immediately.
