Author Notes

These clams open their mouths in a broth of beans, kale, wine, and garlic. I took to removing a bunch from their shells and smearing the whole mix over toasted bread. —Just Me and The Clams

Directions
  1. Scrub the clams in the sink clean. I use a small brush that is meant for cleaning floors.
  2. Heat the butter in the pot on medium heat. Once hot, add the onion and kale, stirring slowly so nothing burns.
  3. After about a minute, add the garlic, white wine, lemon zest, and clams. Cover, steaming the clams open for about 15-20 minutes.
  4. Add the beans, oil, and lemon juice. Serve with lemon wedges and toasted or grilled bread.
