Recipe for 2 people
Preparation time: 15 minutes


Ingredients

  • 300 g lima beans
  • 30 g butter
  • 50 g kale, cut finely
  • 2 tbs olive oil for cooking
  • 1 tsp freshly grated ginger

  • 4 tbs exra virgin olive oil
  • 1 handful of chopped walnuts to garnish
  • zest from a ½ lime


Preparation

1. Rinse the lima beans off with water in a colander and let them drain. (The rinsing is to prevent them from burning).

2. Heat the olive oil in a pan and stir the kale in on a high flame until it begins to colour a bit. Add the garlic and the ginger, turn the heat down a bit lower and stir it for a few minutes. Set this aside.

3. Heat the pan again, now with butter. When the butter starts to turn a bit brown, add the beans and cook them on high heat until they start to turn light brown.

4. Stir the kale in, and season it with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with the walnuts and the lime zest.
