Garlic Kale and Kidney Beans
2 cups chopped fresh kale
2 tsp. olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced (I put 4 because we LOVE garlic!)
1 small can kidney beans (drained)
1-2 tbls slivered almonds
Salt to taste
I like to soak my raisins in hot water for about 10 minutes to make them tender and to plump them up, if you want to soak your raisins too…now is a good time. Remove the kale off of central stem, wash and chop or tear into smaller pieces, slice carrot on the diagonal, and cube turnips. Using a large pot, put a steamer basket inside, add water to bottom, then add the kale. Steam for approx. 10 minutes until tender but not mooshy. Set aside. Put oil in a deep non-stick skillet or pan. Heat oil, add garlic and saute for a minute or so, then add the beans and cook for 2 minutes. Add the nuts and stir around for a minute or so, then add the steamed kale and stir until blended, about 1 minute. Serve. This will feed 1-2 people depending on how hungry you are. This is really a meal all in itself so I don’t usually serve it with anything.
