This incredibly simple Italian-inspired recipe relies on three key ingredients for the bulk of the meal: cod, kale, and cannellini beans. The rest of these ingredients you can probably rustle up from your pantry. While this dish traditionally is served with chicory instead of kale, chicory is a little hard to come by in most local markets. This recipe works because the creaminess of the cannellini beans balances the kale and lean cod. This recipe also delivers a whopping 59 g of protein per serving making it healthy and filling. We chose not to do a starch with this recipe, but you can add any starch you like to the Suvie Starch Cooker.
