Kale can be a bit overlooked, but like most green vegetables it is full of nutrients. Combined with some tangy cheese, it can be a surprising find for a lot of dieters and non-dieters alike.

Ingredients: Serves two

  • 250g fresh fusilli pasta
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 110g kale, stalks removed, washed and chopped
  • Pinch of ground sea salt
  • Pinch of freshly ground black pepper
  • 120ml vegetable stock
  • 200g cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 20g Vegetarian pasta cheese, finely grated (you can use any hard cheese)
  • ¼ small chilli, finely chopped (optional)

Prep 

Cook the pasta in plain boiling water according to packet instructions and then drain.

In a medium saucepan heat the oil then add the garlic, kale and seasoning cook for 1 minute or until the kale starts to wilt, next add the stock and bring it all to the boil, simmer for 5 minutes or until the liquid is nearly evaporated.
