Do you have a bottle of white wine languishing in the corner of your cupboard? Well, who doesn’t? Add a cup of it to this exotic dish, mix it with mushrooms and cannellini beans, and you’ll end up with something truly special.

Our hearty offering is both inexpensive and incredibly easy to make. It’s great for a chilly, not-quite-spring evening, and provides a good excuse to invite a few friends over to your house for dinner. You won’t actually be in France, but at least it’ll feel like it for a little while.

The Happy Gluten-Free Vegan is thrilled to partner with No Cow,
the BEST vegan, gluten-free protein bars!

2 cans cannellini beans, washed and rinsed

Pour four tablespoons of the olive oil into a large frying pan (make sure it’s really big!) Heat the oil, then add the onions, garlic, mushrooms, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Fry at medium heat setting until mushrooms turn slightly brown and begin to soften.

In a small bowl, mix together a slurry of the flour and half the white wine. When it’s smooth, pour into the frying pan with the mushroom/onion/garlic mixture. Add the beans, then the rest of the wine and the vegetable broth, stirring continuously.

Turn off the heat and add the kale, allowing the residual heat to wilt it slightly. Sprinkle in the lemon juice and add another dash of salt and pepper, if desired.

In a separate bowl, combine the panko crumbs, grated lemon zest, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and another pinch of salt and pepper. Pour the mushroom mixture into a large baking pan or casserole dish and cover with the panko mixture, spreading the crumbs evenly.
