Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seed
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 bunch kale, trimmed and coarsely chopped (about 16 cups)
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 4 tilapia fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 can (15 ounces) cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

In a 6-qt. stockpot, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add garlic, fennel and pepper flakes; cook and stir 1 minute. Add kale and water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, 10-12 minutes or until kale is tender.
Meanwhile, sprinkle tilapia with 1/2 teaspoon pepper and garlic salt. In a large skillet, heat remaining oil over medium heat. Add tilapia; cook 3-4 minutes on each side or until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork.
Add beans, salt and remaining pepper to kale; heat through, stirring occasionally. Serve with tilapia. Yield: 4 servings.
Health Tip: Almost half of Americans don’t get enough vitamin A. One serving gives you three times the daily recommendation for this immune-boosting vitamin.
