Wash produce before use
Prep the vegetables
- Trim the stem ends from the green beans if needed; cut the beans into ½-inch lengths.
- Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
- Cut the tomatoes into quarters. Divide into two equal portions, one for cooking with the vegetables and one for the kale salad.
- Rinse the white beans.
Cook the vegetables
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Stir in the green beans and cook until crisp-tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the garlic and half the tomatoes, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the garlic is fragrant and the tomatoes start to soften, 2 to 3 minutes.
Stir in the white beans and cook until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl and season to taste with salt and pepper. Wipe out the pan. While the vegetables are cooking, prepare the pita breads.
Prep and toast the pita
- Gently pull apart the pita breads to form 4  thin rounds.
In the same pan used for the vegetables, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add 1 pita round at a time and cook, turning once, until lightly browned and crisp, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and season lightly with salt. Repeat with the remaining pita rounds, adding more oil if needed. Meanwhile, prepare the salad.
Make the kale salad
In a medium bowl, combine the kale with 2 to 3 teaspoons oil, season with salt and pepper, and gently massage the leaves. Stir in the remaining tomatoes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Transfer 2 pita rounds to each individual plate and spread with the pesto. Top with the vegetables and kale salad and serve.
- Press the garlic (if you have a press).
- Rinse the white beans.
- Pull apart the pita breads.
- Make the kale salad.
- Help assemble the pitas.
