If you have a can of white beans and some kale, you’re more than halfway done for a hearty, filling and delicious dinner!

This has to be one of our easiest recipes out there. And it’s a pretty creative one too! Depending on what type of flavor you’re looking for tonight, you can mix up things a little. If you want a spicier meal, add in some red pepper flakes. If you want more of a pop of flavor, squeeze half a lemon on top of your dish to really bring out the flavors of the other ingredients. Most importantly – have fun with it!

Our recipe adds a poached egg on top, but if you wish to keep this recipe fully vegan, just omit this and dig in! If you’d like to add an egg, here’s a quick rundown on how to poach an egg. Add 1/2 cup of vinegar to a bowl and crack an egg in it. Meanwhile, boil a small pot of water on the stove. Once boiling, use a whisk to stir vigorously, creating a vortex. After you you have a good vortex going, slide your bowl of vinegar and egg into the middle of the pot. Cook for 2 minutes, making sure to keep the egg spinning (even if it slows down). Use a slotted spoon to catch your egg and let it dry a bit with a paper towel on a plate. Then just scoop your egg up and top your dish!*
