Beat the cold weather with a warm serving of this Kale and White Bean Stew recipe...
2 tablespoons of olive oil
650g pound of sausages or chorizo (casings removed for all)
4 cloves of garlic
450g pound kale leaves
800g of chopped tomatoes
1 1/4 teaspoons of salt
1/2 teaspoon of fresh-ground black pepper
800g of rinsed cannellini beans
Step By Step
1. Heat 1
tablespoon of the olive oil over moderate heat. Add in the sausage meat
and hastily break it up with the help of a fork before it cooks. Allow
to simmer for 2 minutes.
2. Add the second tablespoon of oil to the pan and stir in the chopped onions. Cook for a further 3 minutes until the onions have softened.
3. Incorporate garlic and kale to the pan and cook for another 2 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, salt and pepper and let simmer by reducing the heat. Let simmer, on a gentle heat, for another 10-15 minutes until the kale has softened.
4. Stir the beans into your stew and cook for a further 5 minutes whilst mashing up a few beans to thicken the sauce.
