Before you start

Two frying pans | Garlic crush

For the miso chickpeas

  • Peel and roughly chop the shallots
  • Set a frying pan over medium heat and melt the butter. Once melted, add the shallots and gently saute for 2 minutes. Add the chickpeas, their liquid (if using jarred chickpeas) and a big splash of water to the pan. Bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes, occasionally stirring
  • If you use chickpeas from a tin, drain and rinse the chickpeas and add them to the pan with extra liquid, and simmer for at least 15 minutes, so that they soften all the way through
  • In a small dish, stir 2 tbsp water through the miso paste and allow it to dissolve in the heat of the pan
  • Whilst the beans are cooking, sauté the greens

For the garlicky greens

  • Peel and finely chop or crush the garlic
  • Tear the cavolo nero leaves from the stems
  • Heat the olive oil over a medium heat. Add the garlic and gently cook for 1 minute until golden, taking care not to burn it. Toss the cavolo nero into the garlicky oil and allow to wilt. Squeeze of the juice from ½  a lemon and season with salt

Finish and serve

  • Squeeze the juice from ½ lemon over the chickpeas. Taste and season to perfection
  • Top the chickpeas with the garlicky greens and a big drizzle of chilli oil
  • Serve straight from the pan with toasted sourdough for dipping
