  • Simmer the kale in salted water until tender – around 7 to 10 minutes.
  • Drain and reserve the cooking water, and chop the kale.
  • In a large pan, sauté the onion in the oil with the garlic, pepper flakes and rosemary for about 3 minutes.
  • Add the wine/water and cook until it’s reduced to a syrupy sauce.
  • Add the beans, kale and enough cooking water to keep the mixture loose.
  • Heat through, taste for salt and season with pepper, and serve, if preferred, with a dusting of hard cheese and topping of croutons.
