Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

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.

2

Cook the vegetables

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 3 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.

3

Prep and toast the pita

  • Gently pull apart the pita breads to form 4 [8] thin rounds.
In the same pan used for the vegetables, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the pita rounds and cook, turning once, until lightly browned and crisp, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and season lightly with salt. Meanwhile, prepare the salad.

4

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.

Serve

Transfer 2 pita rounds to each individual plate and spread with the pesto. Top with the vegetables and kale salad and serve.
