  • 2 cups dried cannellini beans
  • 1 sprig fresh sage
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons Tuscan Herb Olive Oil*
  • 1/4 cup Wild Mushroom & Sage Oil*
  • 1 small bunch Tuscan kale (cavolo nero) chopped
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan

*Can adjust portions of oil flavors depending on taste


In a medium Dutch oven, combine the beans, sage, garlic, 2 tablespoons of Tuscan Herb olive oil and 6 cups water (bottled preferred). Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce the heat to medium-low to maintain a gentle simmer. Cook, partially covered, for 1 hour 20 minutes, stirring occasionally; the beans should be just tender all the way through.

Add the kale, salt and red pepper flakes to the beans and stir to combine. Cover the pan and simmer until the kale is wilted and tender, an additional 15 minutes. Stir in the remaining cup olive oil and the cheese to finish. Enjoy!
