This recipe may take some time to cook, but your home will smell amazing because of it. Currently I'm in the market for a new slow cooker; it's perfect timing since my favorite will be here before long. See, we've already figured out how to live together - I handle the shopping and he takes care of the cooking. Win-win situation.

4 cups of chopped kale
1 1/2 cups cannellini beans
1 cup chopped onion
3 garlic cloves, peeled
1 Turkish bay leaf
1 tsp dried sage
1 tsp salt
6 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
Dried crushed red pepper

Directions: Place beans in pot with enough cold water to cover about 3 inches and bring to a boil. Continue to boil for 1 minute and then remove from heat. Cover, and let stand for 1 hour. Drain beans and return to the pot. Bring 8 cups of water, onion, garlic, bay leaf, and sage to a boil. Reduce heat, cover & simmer until beans are tender, about 1-1 1/2 hours. Stir in salt and add kale; cook for 4 minutes. Drain beans and kale and place into a large bowl. Toss oil, lemon juice and red pepper to taste.
