When thinking about what to have for dinner for a few friends on Wednesday night I came across this recipe from theKitchn, and decided to give it a try with a few variations. I highly recommend this recipe as a simple yet delicious and satisfying supper with a key ingredient – beauty!

The meal is vegan using olive oil, curly kale, great northern beans, garlic, pepper flakes, rosemary and lemon. I used fennel rather than the recommended shallot, which I found contrasted well with the pepper flakes and kale.

Try Savory Stuffed Sweet Potatoes when serving guests, or when treating yourself to a sweet and savory supper! Added to its beauty, flavor and fun, this meal is packed with nutrients.

Great northern beans will give you protein and fiber and kale , also loaded with fiber, is a great source of antioxidant vitamins A, C, K, and calcium.
