Kale and Fava Bean Minestrone
To make this healthy and nutritious meal,
You will need:
Soak dried beans in cold water for eight hours (or overnight). Wash, peel and cut all the vegetables. Grate the hard cheese on a fine grater, but keep the crust. Rinse and shred the kale leaves, separating them from the stems. Take a pot of suitable size and heat it on a medium-high flame, add oil, add onions, carrots, leeks, celery stalks and a pinch of salt, stir fry for 5-6 minutes or until the vegetables have become softer. Add the mashed garlic and saute for another minute until the garlic releases its aroma. Put the canned tomatoes with all the juice, more salt and mix everything in the pot. If the tomato pieces are large, divide them more finely with a spoon. Add water or broth, add potatoes, soaked beans, hard cheese crust and diced chicken fillet. Everything is cooked on low heat for about 20 minutes, until the chicken fillet is ready, but the potatoes and beans have become soft. Then add the crushed kale leaves, mix well, add salt and pepper.
Serve sprinkled with grated hard cheese, finely chopped parsley and roasted fava beans.
Enjoy your meal!
