PROCEDURE

1. Preheat the oven to 375° F. In a large bowl, combine olive oil, lemon juice, zest, minced garlic, chili flake, and salt and pepper. Add shrimp and toss until they're evenly coated. Arrange shrimp in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until they're cooked through.

2. In a large pot or dutch oven, heat 3 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat. Add diced onion and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes. Add minced garlic and sauté for an additional 30 seconds — stirring frequently and being careful not to burn as garlic burns easily. Add the chopped kale, then toss on the lid for 2 to 3 minutes so the kale can start to wilt down. Remove lid, stir, add salt and pepper to taste, and sauté for another 3 to 4 minutes. Pour in the cannellini beans and cook for another minute or two, just until they're warmed through. Squeeze in juice of 1/2 lemon.

3. Serve everything together — and enjoy!

Extra notes:

• If you prep all of your ingredients beforehand, you should be able to cook the kale and beans in roughly the same time it takes for the shrimp to bake in the oven.
