"Beans and greens make a perfect partnership for this hearty open-face sandwich; greens bring liveliness to the more staid and subtle beans."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

If you love your green veggies, you're in for a treat. I omitted the bread and served this as a side dish with George Foreman grilled chicken breasts. I was a little worried about serving kale to my fiance for the first time but he said he liked it even better than spinach.
I can see why you would want the bread too though - the broth is awesome!
I made this recipe exactly as is and everyone I've prepared it for has asked for the recipe. Absolutely fabulous and very healthy. Also good with roasted garlic instead of raw garlic.
This is not a recipe I would have tried except my husband bought some kale & said "I know you'll find a good way to cook this". Well this definately was a good way to cook it! Of the 3 kale recipes I tried, this was our favorite. I didn't change a thing--we will be having it again.
Nice and simple. Great on whole wheat penne pasta as well.
Great Recipe - such a different way to prepare kale and so supprisingly tasty - I will make this one again for sure!
I too, was looking for a creative and tasty way to prepare bland kale. Mom & I really enjoyed this. It was a real treat. I pretty much stuck tot he recipe, but used spinach and kale, and topped it with sauteed semi-spicy chicken strips. I am making this for the 2nd time now, and finally rating it. Thanks for this!
Great as a MAIN dish. i omitted the bread and served as an stewy, soupy entree. i used canned plum tomatoes and didn't worry about seeding them, and it worked great. i also soaked and cooked my own bans. next time, i may simmer the garlic a LITTLE more to avoid the slightly overpowering taste of the (almost raw) garlic. would be GREAT over chicken breasts or (dont say it!) PASTA!
We really like this recipe - mostly because it is such a yummy way to eat kale. It has protein and fiber from the beans, too. So, five stars for food that is creative, healthy, and delicious!
Dozens and dozens of appetizers perfect for the winter season.
