Method

Step 1 

In a casserole pot, heat 1 tbsp avocado oil over medium heat. Add the sausages and cook until they lose their pink colour, breaking them apart with a fork, about 2 mins.

Step 2 

Add 1 tbsp avocado oil and onions to the mixture. Cook until onions soften.

Step 3

Add the garlic and kale to the pan and cook, stirring, until the kale wilts, about 2 minutes.

Step 4

Stir in the tomatoes, season with salt and pepper; bring to a simmer.

Step 5 

Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until the kale is tender, about 15 minutes.

Step 6 

Stir the beans into the stew and cook until warmed through, about 5 minutes. If you like, mash some of the beans with a fork to thicken the sauce.

Step 7 

Finish stew with fresh parsley and serve
