Ingredients

  • 4 (15 oz) cans cannellini (white kidney) beans
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 1 bunch kale
  • ½ (8 oz) block mozzarella cheese
  • 4 tbsp tomato paste
  • 4 slices whole grain bread
  • black pepper
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • Italian seasoning
  • onion powder
  • salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to broil on high and position rack in the upper third of the oven.
  2. Drain and rinse beans in a colander; set aside to drain further.
    • 4 (15 oz) cans cannellini (white kidney) beans
  3. Wash and dry kale. Fold leaves in half lengthwise, slice off stems, and finely chop leaves.
    • 1 bunch kale
  4. Peel and thinly slice garlic.
    • 6 cloves garlic
  5. Preheat a large ovenproof skillet over medium heat.
  6. Grate cheese and set aside.
    • ½ (8 oz) block mozzarella cheese
  7. Once the skillet is hot, add oil and swirl to coat the bottom. Add garlic and tomato paste; stir to combine.
    • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    • 4 tbsp tomato paste
  8. Add kale to the skillet in handfuls, waiting for the kale to wilt slightly before adding the next handful; cook, stirring often, until kale softens, 4-5 minutes.
  9. Add beans, hot water (from the tap), and spices to the skillet; stir to combine. Bring to a boil, then sprinkle with cheese and place in the oven; broil until cheese has melted and is browned in spots, about 4 minutes. Remove from the oven.
    • 1 cup water
    • 1 tsp salt
    • ½ tsp black pepper
    • ½ tsp Italian seasoning
    • ½ tsp onion powder
  10. Meanwhile, cut bread slices on the diagonal and place on a baking sheet pan in a single layer; drizzle with oil on both sides.
    • 4 slices whole grain bread
    • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  11. Place bread in the oven and broil, flipping halfway through, until nicely toasted, 2-3 minutes. Remove from the oven.
  12. Divide white bean mixture between plates or bowls. Serve with toast for dipping. Enjoy!
