Ingredients

  • A glug of rapeseed oil
  • 2 x 400g tins drained butter beans with
  • 2 tbsp good quality balsamic vinegar (we used Belazu)
  • 1 tbsp granulated brown sugar and salt and pepper
  • 150g roughly chopped kale with the beans
  • 2 tbsp granulated brown sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp more balsamic vinegar

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas 7. Heat the rapeseed oil in a large roasting tin for 2-3 minutes. Add the butter beans with balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, salt and pepper. Roast for 10-15 minutes until starting to turn crisp.
  2. Remove the tin from the oven and toss the kale with the beans. Add an extra 2 tbsp granulated brown sugar, 2-3 tbsp more balsamic vinegar and a good glug of oil. Return to the oven and roast for a further 5 minutes until the kale turns more crisp and is a little charred. Serve straightaway.
