Rye is a cereal that is rarely used in grains, but that goes extraordinarily well with this legume soup. Trying it, you will also enjoy its benefits and properties, and make a more creative and various cuisine. I hope this recipe can positively amaze you: sometimes we need to be more curious to try and discover new recipes. 🙂
It’s kale time…but sometimes we don’t know how to use it. A dear friend of mine, has a beautiful organic farm near Reggio Emilia: she grows a nice garden with a lot of this seasonal vegetable (if you are near Reggio Emilia, I suggest to visit this farm https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100007388536011 …they also produce a special Parmigiano Reggiano); she tells me that a lot of her clients don’t know how to cook kale and ask always for new recipes. You can consider it like chards or turnip tops: just boil them in water and then sauté with extra virgin olive oil and garlic to obtain a simply side dish. But you can also use it to make a salted quiche, a pesto, to enrich a vegetable soup…In this case we cook it to season a short kind of pasta, Malloreddus, (a traditional pasta from Sardegna)…you can also use short penne or orecchiette…
Tell me if you like them 😉
